The Wendt Center: Supporting Your Student's Re-Entry to School

The return to school brings with it varied emotions for both children and caregivers. Excitement, anxiety, fear, sadness, happiness, joy, hope, concern all make sense during this uncertain time. For some students this marks the first time they return to the building in 18 months. For all students, these first few months will be a period of transition. How can we, as caregivers, support students? This question can feel overwhelming and even paralyzing. This workshop will provide caregivers with an understanding of the wide range of responses they may witness in their student and specific strategies to support their student and help them engage in the emotional recovery necessary to achieve academic recovery.
