"Virtual" Parent Training at CRS

  • online

    Carman Road School is committed to meeting the unique needs of families. To this end, our training program is designed with direct input from our families.    

    The first step in implementing our training program is to assess the needs of the families we are serving. We rely on feedback from our families by conducting surveys to inform us what would be most helpful and useful.  See the list below for some of the previous topics we have presented in the past. 

    • Organizing Educational/Medical Records
    • Sensory Processing
    • Preventing Burnout
    • Communication Techniques
    • Understanding Behavior

    The challenges of the current school year have propelled us to begin with a focus on the importance of self-care during an unprecedented time. 

    While unfortunatley, we are not able to deliver these trainings in person, we will be streaming live and invite particpants via Microsoft Teams. If you are not able to join us live, please access the resource after the presentation date.

    The following trainings have been scheduled to help recognize and combat the signs and effects of stress.

    February: Take Care of Yourself – Positive Self Perception
    Physical self-care and well-being are foundational for many other habits. When your body is cared for, you’re better able to deal with emotions. Resilient people have a healthy self-perception, are committed to taking care of themselves, and accept themselves more or less as they are.

    March: Be Here Now -- Humor

    Learning to be in the present moment, without judging it, boosts our resilience. It can allow us to feel accepting and clearheaded about our options for response. When we’re fully present, we’re more likely to find appropriate levity in moments of challenge and to relieve stress by finding humor in a situation.
