Homework Strategies

Westlake Porter Public Library, Porter Room

Join Allison Frazier, MA, BCBA, Assistant Principal of Julie Billiart School, to discuss how to help elementary-aged children with attention issues and developmental delays complete homework.  Some of the tips she will discuss including finding the optimal time for success, organizing your space, breaking it down into manageable pieces and providing an incentive for completion.  Frazier will also discuss ways to make homework a positive experience for both the caregiver and child as well as weaning your child to increased homework independence.

All Connecting for Kids events are free and open to the public.  

Free childcare is available, but participants must RSVP.

The Connecting for Kids mission is to provide education and support for families with questions or concerns about their child’s development.  We are targeting families with children from birth to twelve years of age who have some concern about their child’s development (including behavioral concerns).  We are serving all children; including both children with and without a formal diagnosis such as ADHD or an autism spectrum disorder.  We also offer programs for children who may be described as shy, anxious, impulsive or quick to anger.  We serve all areas of child development whether it is physical, emotional, communication, adaptive or cognitive.  We are focused on the west side of Cuyahoga County and the east side of Lorain County.
