If you've never taken a workshop because your child is not "typical," this workshop is for you!  Come learn how to use the skills of the "How to Talk" workshops with your special child.

REFRESHER AND REUNION WORKSHOPS for workshop graduates

For those with preschool and early elementary-age children:

Private home, Brisbane
 
For those with tweens and teens:
Fri., July 28
10:00 to noon

Could you use some strategies for the new situations and challenges that have come up since you last took a workshop?
Are you finding it hard to remember the skills you learned when you're in the heat of the moment?
 

Many workshop graduates say they wish there were a way to follow up after the workshop has ended.  Now there is!  The Refresher and Reunion workshops are open to graduates of any one or more workshops by Julie King.  We will address your issues and challenges from home (or the park, or school, or...). The group serves as a place to refresh yourself and further explore the skills and philosophy we have studied, as well as a place to get inspiration and concrete ideas for specific situations.
