Parent to Parent-5-week training series
Parent to Parent is a unique training series in which trained parent coaches offer their experiences and education to support families who are raising a child with an ASD.
Parents have the opportunity to network with other parents to learn about strategies, support and resources available to them and their children. Offered live, online through Zoom.
However, in the event that schools need to be closed for longer than next week, we wanted you to have these resources. Further instructions will be sent out if and when continuance of instruction is necessary.

PAWS & Positivity
Let's keep it up boys and girls. Your teachers AND families will keep us informed about all of the WONDERFUL things I know you will continue to do! We will do Virtual Shout Outs on Fridays to keep us all connected and to celebrate the hard work that I know we will continue TOGETHER!
This is a challenge, but I truly believe that we are only handed what we can handle and conquer. My husband and I knew how special Lincoln is 17 years ago when decided to settle here. There is NO BETTER community with which I would want to navigate these uncertain times.
