Interactive Workshops

Interactive workshops are designed to help families gain in-depth knowledge on a topic. During workshop sessions, local pediatric professionals will guide families in discussion, problem-solving and learning experiences.

These programs are free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Translation is also available.

Quick Info


Each workshop meets weekly and workshops last 4-6 weeks. Families are expected to attend all sessions. Due to limited space in workshops, families who miss more than one session will be removed from the workshop and asked to re-register when they are able to commit to the full workshop schedule.

Workshops will be delivered on the Zoom platform (instructions here). Families with technology concerns may contact us at info@connectingforkids.org

    Dealing with health and education issues can be tough. It’s important for families to develop skills to help them navigate these complex systems. Do you want to learn how to find solutions for your child when working with health care providers, therapists and educators? If so, register for one or both of the workshops that focus on families working with professionals and dealing with challenges. The workshop, led by CFK's Family Education Research Analyst Nikki Montgomery, M.A., M.Ed, GPAC, is designed to be a safe space for parents and caregivers of children aged 0-12 years to talk about challenges and work on solutions. This workshop will not be recorded. If you are interested in learning more about the workshop, register using the link below and you will be contacted by a Connecting for Kids staff member. Participants will receive an advocacy kit with course materials. This workshop is presented in partnership with Westlake Porter Public Library.
