In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Head On Talks goes online with Head On Chats and explores important discussions to navigate our time as a society dealing with community quarantine and a public health emergency. Aside from physical sustenance, shelter, and hygiene, we are also coping with managing our mental wellbeing, sense of safety, and emotional hygiene. The Head On Talks Series started in 2018 promoting a culture of understanding, acceptance, and responsibility for mental health.
Our collective transition into the ‘new normal’ shouldn’t be taken lightly, especially with regard to our children. This year, families all over the country are being thrust into the mainly new terrain of working and studying from home, and among the activities that might be new is teletherapy. If teletherapy or learning at home is a challenge right now, there may be learning barriers present.
In this Head On Chat with Bea Querol-Cintron, board certified behavior analyst, we’ll be talking about ways to build up our capacity to help address them, coping with changes in routine, managing learning barriers, and setting up the home for success with a toolkit for home-based learning.
Friday, July 3 2020
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
The talk will be held in a secure Zoom meeting session.
Free – registration required
