The following is a List of the Days and Dates that Family Education Workshops will be held during the Month of November 2022. All Workshops listed take place from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, a second-time slot is available from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM if the earlier time doesn’t work for you. The Family Education Workshops are operating under a Hybrid Model, meaning that you can attend in-person-which is encouraged-or to participate Virtually if that works best for you. Curriculums used are evidence-based and chosen with your Individual Family’s Needs in Mind.
