Episode 25: How Can Educational Therapy Help My Child
Join us as we discuss how educational therapy and coaching can help all kids thrive through educational, social, and behavioral support.  Do you have a child seems unmotivated? Or doesn't recognize their own strengths and talents? Does your child have trouble making healthy decisions? Is your child unsure of what they should do or even how to set long-term goals? Educational therapy interventions include executive functioning coaching, wrap-around organizational support, emotional resiliency programming, and case management services which include personal development, family relationship building, and communication with school faculty and staff and other related professionals. In the process, therapists identify and asses student’s learning needs and tailor a complete plan to address and support healthy development.  This work helps build a child’s theory of mind, develop and utilize strengths-based approach to harness an individual's strengths to overcome challenges, enhance their understanding of how their brain impacts their behavior and development, and strengthen any processing gaps. Educational Therapy is often used to support students with learning differences but can be utilized to address most behavioral issues that result from challenging academic, social, or intellectual contributions.  If you want more information, or about how to get started with our Courageous Kids Program, please head to our website at https://livesofcourage.lpages.co/educational-therapy-info/. Please feel to also also email us at hello@jessicastong.com with any questions!  Thanks for listening!

Episode 22: Courageous Parenting
Join me in discussing what it takes to raise kids today. The challenges and pressures facing parents are significant and the cause of much concern and, at times, overwhelming stress. But we can do this - we can invest our time and resources to help our families grow in strength and resilience. From my experience, this important work to create change in our families starts and ends with us.  Parenting with courage helps children to build a story of strength to reflect on just how important they are and why they matter.  But please know You are not alone. I want you to take some time to write down what you want for your family and your life. You can download a worksheet to guide you in this process at livesofcourage.com/podcasts or a free Guide to Parenting with Courage at www.livesofcourage.com.
