January Roundtable
Emotional Regulation: How to Connect with and Coach your Child and Teen
Children with AD/HD and SLD often experience more challenges and stress from school and daily life.  When this stress and frustration build up after school and you ask your child to tidy up or start his homework, he blow up at you or stonewall you.  How do you connect with your child/teen who is reluctant to engage with you or won't talk with you?  How can you detangle yourself from power struggles and be present to reconnect with your child?  

In this roundtable meeting, you will learn how to: 
  • Coach instead of react to your child
  • Help your child and teen to manage frustrations and disappointments
  • Connect with your child through conversation and mutual engagement
  • Build a bank of emotional vocabulary with your child/teen
This Roundtable is appropriate for parents of pre-school, primary aged children and teens. Educators are welcome. 

Parents value the support and connections that FOCUS roundtables provide in the sometimes-difficult journey of raising a child with learning differences in Hong Kong.

Save the Dates - Feb 19, 2019
Join our upcoming Roundtables to learn from experts and/or share your own experiences, talk about support strategies, and to explore your personal questions in greater depth. 

Inspire Us With Your Experience !

One of the most frequent things we hear from our parent community is “I felt so alone, I didn’t know who to talk to.”.  We often hear stories from our parents about kids struggling in high-school or college who change schools and then thrive, stories about kids embarrassed by “learning support” who become confident self-advocates, and from kids finding their own paths to success.  If you’ve been there, please share your story to inspire others who are in that tough place.

So then what?  We understand and respect a need for privacy.  Any information you share will be treated confidentially and nothing is shared without your express permission.
