Parent Education Program
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.
Collaboration with the Parents Education Network (PEN)
Ann Martin Center is excited to join efforts with the Parents 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. For more information, visit www.parentseducationnetwork.org.

For youth with weak executive functioning skills, one of the most difficult parts of accomplishing work can often be just getting started. This workshop will help parents better understand how struggles with task initiation are experienced by students across grade levels. Actionable suggestions for both academic and home-based supports will also be explored.
