Community Education

Ann Martin Center sponsors ongoing free lectures and workshops as part of a commitment to Community Education.  We offer presentations for parents and caregivers as well as for educators and child mental health professionals.  Suggestions for topics or speakers are welcome.

For Parents & Caregivers

Our Parent Education Program at Ann Martin Center strengthens parent-child-family relationships by addressing parenting concerns about their child’s emotional, behavioral, and academic development. With an emphasis on prevention and early intervention, our workshops provide vital support, skills, and tools that promote positive parenting. Workshops are FREE unless noted otherwise.

Ann Martin Center is excited to join efforts with the Parent Education Network (PEN) to co-sponsor several of our Parent Education Workshops.

PEN is a membership-based coalition of parents collaborating with educators, students and the community to empower and bring academic and life success to students with learning and attention differences.  PEN focuses on delivering high-impact, high-quality programs including Student Advisors for Education (SAFE), parent support meetings, a parent education speakers series and EdRev, PEN’s annual resource conference .  PEN is based in San Francisco with affiliates in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Dallas, and Phoenix.
