New Sharing our Strength Group Provides Education and Support to Parents and Guardians
The League School recently launched a new initiative for parents and guardians that provides helpful support and education. In keeping with the school’s goal of encouraging parents and guardians to be involved in the ongoing education of their child, the school launched the Sharing our Strength program. “In keeping with our objectives, by combining parent and guardian expertise with the school’s know-how, we can create a team that maximizes students’ development,” said Stephanie Steen, Director of Clinical and Behavioral Services.
In late fall, Stephanie sent a survey to parents and guardians to elicit input on this new program. The school encourages those who haven’t responded to do so to make the program valuable for all. “This group offers a platform for parent-to-parent support, resources, and an opportunity to celebrate successes,” said Stephanie. “The program encourages a sense of community among League School parents.”
Sharing our Strength is offering a timely March program:
Monday, March 28, 11AM-noon
How to Navigate the Guardianship Process

Rachel Sletzinger, LICSW, Clinical Department Head of the League School, will outline the process of guardianship and how it protects your child’s rights to proper care and services.
