Help your children succeed by teaching them a growth mindset. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities. Come learn how to teach your kids, and maybe yourself, how to have a growth mindset.

Eventos en Español
En el centro ofrecemos dos talleres al mes específicamente en español, presentados por hispanohablantes que también viven aquí y quienes son padres de niños con discapacidades. Los talleres cubren temas como el proceso IEP en la escuela, la transición a la vida adulta de un joven con discapacidades, como navegar y usar bien los recursos disponibles en la comunidad y más. Los talleres toman lugar en nuestra oficina en Murray y se puede asistir a través de Zoom también. Unase con nosotros para aprender aún más sobre cómo apoyar y defender a sus hijos con discapacidades y cómo cuidarse bien a sí mismo como padre de un niño con necesidades especiales.
