Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I hope you and your kids are getting into a routine after what is always a busy transitional time. There seem to be a lot of big emotions in my house leading up to and during the first week of school! As kids and families settle in for what I hope is a productive and happy year, I found some interesting reads that may address a few challenges that may come up this fall. I hope there are helpful ideas and inspiration in these articles for you, just as there were for me.
Help Kids Silence Negative Self Talk
Strategies to Help Kids Manage Anxiety and Perfectionism
ADHD Homework Stress: Strategies
The Family and School Support Team has undergone a leadership change, so for the time being, Mrs. Murray and I haven't scheduled any upcoming talks or presentations. We hope to bring knowledgeable speakers, helpful and pertinent information, and other solid resources and tools to the Baldwin community, and specifically special needs families very soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your special needs child and his or her education at Baldwin, feel free to reach out to me through this site!
All abilities are welcome! Please reach out to my friend, Shelly Corrigan, if you have any questions. Her contact info is on the flyer.
Lights are up and sound is down at these showings. See more info here.
Please join us on March 8th to hear Lindsey Lieneck speak on Mindfulness...please see the attached information!
Special Needs Camp Guides are available now.
Alison Baucom spoke a few years ago at Baldwin, and presented some invaluable information on parenting. I highly recommend attending! The site should be accepting RSVPs in the next few days.
Holidays and transitions can be TOUGH for all of us...especially for those who have special needs, or who are parents or guardians of kiddos with special needs. But now that the memories have been made and (most of) the chaos is over, hopefully you and your family are starting to feel settled again!
There are so many resources and opportunities through the school district this winter and spring. Check out the flyer below for more information! Flyers of the events will be posted in the Baldwin lobby on the CPAP bulletin board soon.
Here's to the hope and fresh start that only a new year can bring!
