Judy was a vocational ed student who struggled with reading skills throughout her school career. She graduated with a diploma even though her reading skills were on a first grade level. She became pregnant at a young age, had a second child, and has taken care of her two children on her own. Judy was referred to the Children & Famfirst-gradee Center and has participated in the Adolescent Parenting Program in high school and the Parents as Teacher Program since April, 2012. With her parent educator, she has worked to be the best parent she can be and to help her daughters develop into self-confident children who make good decisions and do their best. Together, Judy and her parenting coach helped her daughter Mary prepare for Kindergarten learning the skills necessary for success in school. Mary, age 5, entered Kindergarten this fall and loves school. With Judy’s educational career and reading struggles, she had been feeling apprehensive. Last week Mary’s teacher called Judy to say that Mary achieved the top score on her spelling assessment. Judy has been doing her best to read to Mary at night and has learned to use an application on her phone to help her when she comes to a word she does not recognize. Mary’s success is also Judy’s success. Her pride and happiness are evident as she realizes their hard work is paying off. With support from the Parents as Teachers Program and her parent coach, Judy is setting goals for herself and her children and is no longer afraid to dream big.

Children & Family Resource Center will begin its “ReGroup” for local parents on Tuesdays beginning June 17th. This group will meet weekly at the Children and Family Resource Center and is intended for parents, grandparents, and foster parents of children of all ages. Members will share ideas for what works when it comes to dealing with challenging behaviors and provide support for each other to make the right choices as parents. The Regroup is led by a trained counselor and parent educator who will offer strategies to help parents navigate the ups and downs of parenthood. Snacks and socializing will begin at 10 am and the group will meet from 10:30-11:30. Child care will also be provided. For more questions or to reserve your spot, call Laura Kollman or Becki Woolf at 698-0674.
Children are invited to come out to the Early Learning Center at the Children & Family Resource Center beginning on June 4 th and continuing each Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-3:30 to practice their reading skills while sharing their favorite stories with a loveable therapy dog.
When children read to a therapy dog, their environment is transformed and the dread that is often associated with reading turns into eager anticipation allowing learning to take place. In many programs over the country, specially trained dogs are helping children become confident readers. Participating kids are making enormous strides in reading and communication skills, while also building self-esteem, confidence, and social skills.
Early readers are encouraged to come to the Early Learning Center to share a book with an adorable reading companion. Call Noreen at (698)-0674 ext. 110, to make a reservation as space is limited.
