This workshop is designed for families who want to make sure they start the school year off on teh right foot. I designed this to be comprehensive and powerful.

We dive into all the topics needed for success, homework management, planning, stress, communication, advocacy, the brain, how to study using your style, and much more. You’ll learn everything you need for a solid foundation!
