Warrior Mom’s Empowerment Group: 8-Week Workshop

Warrior Mom’s Empowerment Group: 8-Week Workshop

Think Outside the Box Coaching, LLC Presents:

Warrior Mom’s Empowerment Group

Starts Monday, April 3rd in Boulder/Longmont

 

Looking for community?  Feel like you’re alone and overwhelmed?

Not sure how to make a difference for yourself or your family?

Become Inspired, Find Your Passion, and Find Friends!

 

 

What is the Warrior Mom's Empowerment Group?

The Warrior's Mom Empowerment Group (WMEG) is a unique program for mothers of special need children that focuses on those matters that all women need to thrive- namely self-fulfillment, self-nourishment, intimate relationships, and true connections to other women.

 

Why a WMEG

Women and mothers around the world are prone to self-sacrifice. It is their nature to put everyone and everything else before themselves. However, when one has a child with special needs, that child can become their life to the point of loosing themselves almost completely.  Taking care of others at their own expense can often lead to depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and isolation.   

 

At Think Outside the Box Coaching LLC we recognize the unique vulnerabilities of special need mothers.  WMEG was created to provide these special moms with a safe and intimate environment where they can come together to find the tools they need to inspire, encourage and empower themselves, their families and each other. 

 

How does WMEG work?

Initially there is an 8-week Introduction Course.  The group will meet once a week for 90 minutes with a maximum of 10 women.  Class size is small allowing for true intimacy among the participants. During this 8-week, period participants will lay the foundations necessary to find out which area(s) of their lives they would like to empower. (Don’t worry if you have no idea what that may be.) Each week a new theme will be introduced.  Participants will be encouraged to set personal goals and begin planning their personal action plan. At the end of the 8 weeks there will be an option for participants to continue with the group on a more permanent basis if that is so desired.  

 

What is the Cost?

The Warrior Mom’s Empowerment Introduction Course is $240 for the full 8 weeks. (If you receive funding from your local CCB, this course should be covered under “Parent Support.” Check with your case manager.)

 

Where does the WMEG take place?

Because our time is very precious, our goal is for no one to have to travel more than 30 miles.  Check off on the registration form which area is most convenient for you, (Denver/Broomfield or Boulder/Longmont) and you will see your specific location address on the registration form.

 

 

 

Other Options:

Please contact Dr. Goresko directly if you would like her to lead a group of Warrior Mom’s in your area.  WMEG might be a great alternative or a great supplement to your local support group. She can be reached at DrStacy@ThinkOutsideTheBoxCoaching.com or call 720-290-2707.  

 

How do I Register?

For your convenience the registration form is provided inside this brochure.  Fill it out and send it along with your complete payment to: Dr. Stacy Goresko, 8083 Meadowdale Square, Longmont CO, 80503. Space is very limited and is first come first served.  For more information, Dr. Goresko can be reached at DrStacy@ThinkOutsideTheBoxCoaching.com or call 720-290-2707

                       

Lead Instructor:Dr. Stacy Goresko, is a National Speaker, Educator, and Certified Autism Consultant.  She is also a parent of a child with autism and understands what families need to thrive.  In addition, she is a certified life coach and has dedicated her life and her passion to inspiring others to inspire themselves. She is a firm believer that when we take care of ourselves first, we are better able to take care of others.

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Jeff Kupfer, PhD, Board Certified Behavior Analyst

In order to build cooperative behaviors in others, we must learn to change our own behavior patterns and practices. This class provides a brief overview of selected evidence-based behavior principles based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We will review the dangers of using coercive and punitive methods to change behavior, and will focus on positive alternatives.

Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, Educators/Teachers and Community Members will learn to use Cooperative Behavior Building methods for behavior change by:

  • Recognizing and understanding the five principles of behavior to enhance relationships

  • Distinguishing between proactive and reactive methods and how these two approaches result in diverse outcomes

  • Drawing upon Cooperative Behavior Building methods to increase positive behaviors and decrease challenging or problematic behaviors

Classes are free and open to the public

Class are held at the John Taylor Conference Center at 1665 Coal Creek Drive in Lafayette
9:00AM-1PM / Registration begins at 8:30AM

State Stakeholder Meeting: Eligibility Determination and Needs Assessment Tools

State Stakeholder Meeting: Eligibility Determination and Needs Assessment Tools

State stakeholder meeting to provide input on eligibility determination and needs assessment tools

Purpose: To inform individuals receiving Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS), legal guardians, families, case managers, advocates, service providers and other stakeholders of upcoming Regional Forum Meetings where attendees can provide input about a new needs assessment tool.

Background: Through the passage of Senate Bill 16-192, the Colorado General Assembly directed the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department) to develop or select a needs assessment tool for all persons recieving LTSS, including persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). In addition, legislation requires the Department to make the selection of a needs assessment tool in collaboration with persons with I/DD who receive sevices, legal guardians, case managers, and any other stakeholders as determined by the state department.

Since March 2014, the Department has worked in collaboration with stakeholders to review Colorado’s current LTSS eligibility determination and assessment tools and processes. In addition to the reivew, the Department and stakeholders have selected and customized new tools for eligibility determination and needs assessment for all individuals in need of or receiving LTSS.

Information: In order to comply with legislation, the Department has established seven Regional Forum Meetings for the Department to present the work completed to date and obtain feedback from all stakeholders regarding the eligibility determination and needs assessment tools selected. The Regional Forum Meetings will provide an opportunity for needed collaboration across stakeholder communities.

Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing with Autism Spectrum Disorder

JFK Partners and HCP, a program for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

 

Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Wed., Apr 19, 2017 – 1:00-3:00 PM

 

We invite you to join us for an Autism Awareness Month educational event. Children with co-occurring Deafness or Hard of Hearing (DHH) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have a delayed diagnosis, therefore also have delayed intervention. Many professionals are unable to separate behaviors associated with deafness and hearing loss from those associated with autism.  Furthermore, professionals with expertise in autism are often unable to communicate directly with children who are DHH who use sign language, are unfamiliar with deafness and how autism may impact their sign or spoken language communication both receptively and expressively. Children with dual diagnosis are often the most complex children that professionals in deafness and hearing loss need to screen, diagnosis and re/habilitate. The presence of this dual diagnosis can significantly complicate developmental outcomes and requires highly specialized intervention. This webinar is for care coordinators, health department personnel, school personnel, and other professionals working with children. Anyone is welcome to attend this free webinar at the live site or online. 

 

Following this event, the audience will better understand:

·       “Red flags” which may indicate the presence of ASD symptoms, distinct from symptoms related to the child’s hearing loss

·       Unique considerations for referral, screening, assessment, and intervention for dually diagnosed children

·       Local, state-wide, and national resources

 

Agenda:

1:00-1:05 – Welcome and Introductions
1:05-2:00 – Description of the unique presentation of ASD among children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
2:00-2:45 – Considerations for referral, screening, diagnostic assessment and intervention
2:45-3:00 – Wrap-up and Q&A

 

Speakers:

·       Christie Yoshinaga-Itano, PhD, Research Professor, Institute for Cognitive Science, University of Colorado Boulder

·       Deborah Mood, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Developmental Pediatrics, Children’s Hospital Colorado
