February Meeting

February 11, 2020

6:30- 8pm

North High School Library

Meeting Topic: Parent Cafe discussion about Executive functioning.

Come join us as we try something new!

Our SEPTA survey results showed parents want more time to connect and learn with others. The SEPTA board would like to try a “Parent Cafe model” to discuss the topic of Executive Functioning.

We hope it will be a great way to meet others, share our knowledge and pick up tips.

Here is a link about “Parent Cafes”

and the video about Executive Functioning we will be using as a basis for discussion

Monday, March 9th

4:00-6:00 p.m.

Parents will be able to meet Vendors from our area and beyond, check out resources for their children/young adults with special needs and kids can play!
