Parkland School Division is proud to partner with Alberta Parenting For The Future to present these upcoming FREE information sessions for local families.

Emotional Regulation

In this Strong Families session, registered psychologist Josee Hutton will highlight the importance of learning to regulate our emotions, so that we can respond quickly and appropriately in times of stress, and act as role models to our children, so that they might feel empowered to do the same. This discussion group will share ideas and anecdotes to discover effective ways for adults and children alike to stay calm no matter what their circumstances.

Date: Tuesday, November 16, 2021
Time: 6:30-8pm
Location: Online Zoom Webinar / Discussion Group
Presenter: Josee Hutton, Registered Psychologist (Parkland School Division)

In this constant state of change and unknown, it is normal to feel overwhelmed: we are all carrying a lot of stress and heavy emotions. During such times, parenting and supporting our children through these emotions can be extra challenging, as everyone's stress levels are heightened. When we can regulate our emotions, both children and adults alike are able to feel empowered and problem solve much more effectively. Let's use this session to meet and discuss ways to achieve emotional regulation in a supportive and non-judgemental way.

ADHD & Occupational Therapy

In this Strong Families session, occupational therapist Nicole Kluthe will examine the intricacies of ADHD and why children living with this condition may excel in some activities while struggling with others – particularly those requiring precision, focus and organization. Participants will learn ways in which they can aid their children in improving their skills in these areas, while addressing their unique sensory needs.

Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2021
Time: 6:30-8pm
Location: Online Zoom Webinar / Discussion Group
Presenter: Nicole Kluthe, Occupational Therapist (Woven Blessings)

Our children with ADHD can be tricky to understand. Why are they hyper-focused on some activities and then don’t know how to initiate and engage in others? How can they go through a parkour course with ease but struggle with handwriting? In this webinar, we will explore strategies to help children with managing some of their sensory needs, executive functioning skills, sensory regulation and overall coordination to participate successfully in everyday activities.
