Transform Challenging Behavior Online Conference

Are you a mom trying to work from home while supervising your preschooler’s online learning…

...a toddler teacher struggling to work with children who hit, bite, throw things or just won’t listen…

...or a parent whose only wish is to get your kid to child care in the morning without having to deal with a tantrum or meltdown?

If so, I’ve got good news for you!

My friend Barb O’neill is hosting The 4th annual Transform Challenging Behavior Online Conference April 28th to May 4th… and I’m going to be one of the guest speakers!

Click HERE to register NOW! (It’s FREE!)

At this event you’ll hear from over two dozen industry experts -- each sharing their innovative and effective strategies for handling challenging behavior (perfect if you’ve “tried everything” and want something that’s super-fun and engaging -- and actually works).

Each day, you’ll get on-demand access to three, hour-long, pre-recorded video sessions. And you’ll have access to them for 24 hours, so you can watch them at a time that suits you (starting at 9AM PST, 11AM CST, 12PM EST).

You’ll also get:

Free daily workbooks (with graphics!) to help you remember key ideas from each talk
Questions and exercises to help you reflect on your teaching and implement what you’re learning
A private Facebook group where you can connect with other educators and families with young children (you can share your specific behavioral concerns and talk with conference speakers!)

Right now -- in this new world of remote learning, ever-changing rules for schools, and increased demands on you as a parent to support your child’s learning -- this is more important than ever!

Check out all the amazing speakers and topics here: http://calmthechaosworkshop.com/join-tcboc

It’s going to be a week filled with laughing and learning...shenanigans and freebies...prizes...and maybe even a puppet or two thrown in for good measure 😉https://www.challengingbehaviorconference.com/

"The play is being supported by STEP VA, Inc., a group which “empowers people with special needs through artistic expression and sensory exploration.” The musical is unique partly because it has been created, produced and directed by someone with autism, and is starring a cast composed solely of people with disabilities."(Channel 10 news story)

The Molly Gill Memorial Scholarship Fund - The Community Foundation

Applications for the Molly Gill Memorial Scholarship are open. The scholarship is awarded to any area graduating senior who has excelled with a physical disability.

This scholarship was established in memory of Molly Gill, who was a quadriplegic as the result of an accident. Molly faced her daily challenges with courage, and a determination to further her education and become independent. Molly Gill embraced the goodness of each day and her spirit is best summarized by the following quote: “I can always say, ‘what if?’ But, I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere with that."

The Community Foundation is a devoted advocate for the vitality and well-being of the Rappahannock River region. Our mission is to build a flourishing philanthropic community.
