PEN San Francisco Meeting:
Anxiety, LD & Attention Issues at School
Wednesday Dec. 13, 2017
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Sterne School, Downtown San Francisco
Dear Friends of PEN,
It is my pleasure to invite you to a PEN San Francisco meeting! The PEN team at CHC would love to meet with you, provide an update on the status of PEN programs at CHC, and address any questions that PEN members may have.
This FREE meeting will also feature a 45-minute presentation on Anxiety, LD & Attention Issues at School by Chris Harris, Director of the Esther B. Clark School, plus time for Q&A at the end.
Location: Sterne School, 838 Kearny Street, San Francisco, CA
We know anxiety can be a very debilitating condition for students at school. Their preoccupation with an inevitable social or academic disaster at some point during their school day is closely associated with emergent learning and attention issues.
Drawing on his 25 years of experience as a teacher and administrator in special education schools, Chris will discuss how important it is to coordinate academic accommodations with therapeutic interventions to mitigate this emotional hardship for our kids. He will also touch on depression, a close cousin to anxiety with both similar and unique effects on students in school.
I hope that you will join us to touch base with other PEN members and the PEN team at CHC, and to hear an expert presentation on this important topic. Space is limited, so be sure to register today!
Please join us and share with friends.
