Upcoming SEED events

    • Thursday, October 11, 2018
    • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    • Acalanes High School Library

    Whether your child is high school, middle school, or elementary school, and regardless of his/her disability, you may be asking yourself questions like these:

    • How will my high school student succeed in college without special education support?
    • ·     How will my 7thgrader confidently adapt to the complexity of high school?
    • ·     How will my 3rdgrader navigate the social politics (and homework!) of middle school?
    • ·     How will my kindergartener grow up with strong self-esteem despite her disabilities?
    • ·     How will our children with special needs become confident, competent and content in their adult lives (without us)?

    Come join us for a thought-provoking evening with advocate Todd Gary, designed to challenge us to foster self-advocacy in our children.  This high-energy presentation will provide us with powerful tools to examine our parenting and its impact, and to empower us to release the potential of our amazing kids.  We’ll explore the importance of self-knowledge, how to raise an “I can” child, distinguishing between product and outcome, fostering internal identity, tackling the crippling fear of failure, and the ultimate celebration (and terror) of letting go.  Fun, fear and controversy are guaranteed!
