Connecting for Kids

Connecting for Kids Logo

Euclid Public Library is a proud Connecting for Kids partner. Connecting for Kids (CFK) provides education and support for families with a concern about their child. They can help with many types of concerns -- from understanding a new diagnosis to family changes, like divorce or adoption.

CFK provides resources on many concerns including anxiety, attention issues, autism, developmental delays, epilepsy, and sensory issues. CFK also helps families whose children are having difficulty making friends, struggling academically, or facing a major life change such as parents divorcing.

What types of programs come from this partnership?

Behavior Chat - How Structure Can Prevent Meltdowns

Thursday, October 6 at 6:30pm in the Lake and Shore Rooms at Euclid Public Library

Do you want strategies to motivate your child towards positive behavior? Do you wish you had a kit filled with proactive “tools” you could use to get ahead of meltdowns before they start? Join us to learn how to use the tools in our Behavior Toolkit to help your child manage emotions. Each attendee will receive a free Behavior Toolkit. The content in this program is geared toward caregivers of children ages 18 months - 6 years (with or without developmental concerns). At each session, Ochanya McRoberts-Wells, MEd, will discuss the theme of the month and answer your questions on a variety of topics, which can be asked during the program or submitted upon registration.

To register for the program, visit connectingforkids.org/register and click on Register for an Adult Program.
