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?
