Monday, April 7th, 2014

Sensory Friendly Easter Bunny Savannah Mall This Saturday April 12, the Caring Bunny will greet families at the lower level of Center Court in the Savannah Mall, located at 14045 Abercorn St.

With an atmosphere free from bright, flashing lights, or high-energy music, all children with different abilities are invited to meet Caring Bunny at this free event from 8-10 AM April 12 2014.

Children with autism have senses that can be oversensitive or under-developed, which affects how they experience different environments, making background noises unbearably loud or confusing. This can cause anxiety or even physical pain.

Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone. In addition, families will be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit and a complimentary ride on the children’s train.

Parent Skill-Building Workshop in Pooler: Tips for Parenting a Child with Behavior & Communication Challenges, Savannah

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Savannah parent skill building workshop

Children with disruptive behaviors and/or communication challenges can be much more difficult to parent.

Over time you may feel that your current parenting style has become less effective and feel unable to manage your child’s behavior. Kids react to parents, parents react to kids, and over time both create more coercive behaviors toward each other. Because of the continuing struggle, as a parent you may lower your expectations and/or stop paying attention.

Parent training available in Pooler works to make corrections now. It helps to stabilize the home situation and prepares your child for a successful peer interactions too. This training provides proactive strategies that you can take home and use immediately as well as provide a better understanding as to why these power struggles occur.

With training, you will learn how to interact with your children without power struggles. Learn how to reward appropriate behaviors, and create expectations that shift the pattern.

Please click here to register for the Parent Skill-Building Workshop in Pooler.
