Do you have a child developmentally between the ages of 2-12 years old who has a disability? Do you want to learn how to manage problem behavior and developmental issues common in children with disabilities?

Learn how to encourage behavior you promote, as well as strategies to cope with stress, develop a close relationship with your child, and teach your child new skills.

We will be offering a Stepping Stones Triple P 12-session series in English starting 9/3 – 11/19 virtually from 10:00am - 12:00pm, with the potential to host a graduation celebration at a community park!

Wondering what Stepping Stones is?
Stepping Stones Triple P has been developed for parents of children with a developmental disability. Because it’s based on Triple P’s proven parenting strategies, it gives you ways to deal with the kinds of childhood behavior problems and issues that can make family life stressful. Stepping Stones Triple P has been evaluated with real families and has been shown to work with children with intellectual and physical disabilities who have disruptive behavior.
