Life transitions can be both exciting and anxiety-inducing for children and parents, especially this fall as many families head back to school and begin to navigate remote learning. As parents and children look to better understand their new daily routines, school learning structure and home life balance, we know finding support and ways to cope with anxieties and emotions are critical.

Join STAR Institute psychologist Dr. Courtney McDonnell and Lead occupational therapist Lindsay Fogerty as they use A SECRET to help parents problem solve online learning. In this workshop series, parents will learn useful strategies to help their families transition back to school and adapt to the changes in routines at home.

At STAR Institute, we understand returning back to school looks different for every family and age group across the country and world. We do not specifically endorse any certain decision or choice for learning for your child or family.
