SERVICES

Of the children enrolled in our Early Intervention Program, 46% make such progress by the age of 3 that they are no longer eligible for services. And 75% make such strides in their development that they narrow the gap with their typically-developing peers. The first step is to call for a FREE developmental evaluation and find out how Kindering can assist your family.

The Terrible/Terrific Ones, Twos and Threes…

Dr. Carol Baer, Pediatric Associates

Many parenting challenges can arise as your child rapidly grows and develops during the first 3 years.  Contradictory advice on how you handle those challenges is typical.  This talk will focus on approaching behavior problems from a developmental perspective, applying the best research available to help you focus on meeting the social and emotional needs of your child.

Join us from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Wednesday evening at Kindering Bothell! Come as early as 6pm for mingling and light refreshments.

Individuals interested in attending may RSVP with Colleen Willisor leave a message at 425-289-7527 so we can ensure space is available.
