Parent Resources

Parent Conferences     

Please call to schedule an appointment to discuss any social, emotional or academic concerns you may have for your child.  Together, we can support your child during stressful situations and transitions.  Referrals to community resources are also available.

Monthly Newsletter     

Look for Families In Focus, the elementary counseling newsletter, published in Audubon's monthly newsletter.  Each month highlights a topic relevant to raising elementary school aged children.  Do you have a suggestion for a topic you’re interested in?  Let me know!

Parent Resource Library
book
Come in and browse the parenting resources in the counseling office.  Too busy to read?  Audio and videotapes are available.  Children’s books are also for loan to help you discuss sensitive issues with your child.  For example, there are books to help you explain divorce, separation, and death of a loved one or a family pet.
