Ask The Experts

This is a brief topic presentation (20 min.) with the rest of the time (40 – 50 min.) reserved for discussion of topics on parents’ or teachers’ minds. We often discuss typical situations that occur at home or school and potential solutions. Topics may include:

  • Typical vs. atypical development
  • How to deal with specific behaviors
  • United parenting
  • How to help kids express and understand their feelings
  • Temperament
  • Behavior plans and reward systems
  • Social relationships
  • Self-esteem and self confidence, and more.

These relaxed and interactive 1-1.5 hour presentations will give staff and/or parents an opportunity to learn about important aspects of child development, behavior management, parenting and social-emotional health. In addition, the presentations provide a forum for parents/ teachers to discuss behavior challenges and developmental concerns with experienced child and family therapists.

Fees: The usual fee for presentations is $200. There is some flexibility, depending on the size of group and length of presentation. Contact Noah at: noahkempler@yahoo.com 415-717-3915 for more information.
