A famous quote goes, “Parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual!” But, it does come with lots of advice from people whose parenting styles differ from your own, especially if your child needs special attention. Connecting with someone who can empathize and understand your needs is invaluable!
Gayle Fisher has walked the walk. Personal experience in dealing with her son’s serious health issues roused her desire to help others find a method to handle their individual situation effectively and progressively.
Gayle provides an inside look into dealing with childhood development issues through Parenting Classes held at the Lone Star College–Montgomery Campus. Determining how a child learns is crucial in providing an environment that encourages them to develop to their greatest potential. Prompt attention to specific issues makes a big difference in the future of a child needing special attention. Topics covered in Gayle’s classes include:
* The Brain
* Motor Function (Gross, Fine & Oral)
* 12-Step Program
* Mid-line Crossover
* Primitive Reflexes
* The Power of Music
* Support Systems
Gayle emphasizes that, “Parents of special needs children can get overwhelmed and want to hide, but that’s not best for the child's learning, The class is as much science-based as it is educational theory-based. There are a lot of things you can do at home to help learning. It’s all about empowering families to help their children’s strengths come out.” Parents of children recently diagnosed with special needs are especially encouraged to attend.
Two free classes are scheduled in May:
