Join us for a play-based program designed to model and teach parents/caregivers strategies to improve their child’s social interactions, facilitate communication, and manage behavior in a positive way. This program is designed for children who need help with communication and social skills. It is led by an Early Intervention Specialist in Behavior from the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

Please note that new sessions are listed approximately one month before the actual class date. You will only see the next month's program availability when the current month's program is over.

RSVP required. If this is your first time attending this program, please contact Laurie Demchak at lauriedemchak@connectingforkids.org for proper class placement. In order to accommodate as many families as possible, we ask that you only attend one session per month. Due to the popularity of this program, registrations fill quickly. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for a particular session, please contact Laurie Demchak. Families on the waiting list are given first priority for next month's registration.

This program is offered in conjunction with the Westlake Porter Public Library and generously supported by grants from The Cleveland Foundation and Nordson Corporation Foundation.
