NEW – Family Enrichment Program Parenting Resources

Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®) provide reliable, accurate developmental and social-emotional screening for children between birth and age 6. Drawing on parents’ expert knowledge, ASQ has been specifically designed to pinpoint developmental progress and catch delays in young children—paving the way for meaningful next steps in learning, intervention, or monitoring.

The Circle of Security Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. Learning objectives of the Program:

  • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
  • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of your child's self esteem
  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

As an outreach program, we meet clients in the community, in their homes or at our offices.
