Parent Education

In February, Dr. Laura Pace, Counselor and Play Therapist, was a guest speaker at Mohawk as part of our PTA Parent Education Program.  She discussed signs of anxiety in children, how parents can help and when to seek outside help.  We had several requests to record & post her lecture.  Please thank Emily McMurtrey & Philip Warner for giving of their time & talents to make this video possible! Follow the link below ~ It will be available to view over the next 2 weeks.
