September Parent Support Meeting

As parents of kids with learning and attention differences who often need a lot of support we sometimes are better at taking care of others than we are at tending to our own self-care. PEN in collaboration with family therapist Elisabeth Corsale of Pathways Institute is piloting a space for parents of students with learning and attention differences to meet once a month to support each other on the journey of insuring that our kids get what they need to find academic and life success.

Each month's meeting will have a specific theme for exploration but we invite you to also bring what you are experiencing in your own lives so that you can feel nourished and connected to other parents going through similar experiences.

Time: 11:30AM - 1PM

Location: Pathways Institute, 110 Gough Street, Suite 401, San Francisco, CA 94102

Cost: $10 for PEN Members

Limited spaces available. Please call (415) 751-2237 or email pen@parentseducationnetwork.org to reserve a place.

Growing Up with ADHD:

Perspectives of a Child Psychiatrist Father and his Now Adult Son

Glen Elliott MD and his son Mark Elliott

This presentation will provide an overview of how ADHD evolves over time, using one family’s experience to illustrate how ADHD can affect development and relationships.  The expectation is that the audience will gain a better appreciation of how ADHD affects family life, for better and worse, and learn about coping strategies that may help diminish problems, ease tensions, and enhance outcomes.

Time: 9AM -11AM

Location: Athena Academy Auditorium, 525 San Antonio Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94306

Cost: $60 Non-members | $20 Members | FREE Staff at PEN Member Schools
