I am writing this to let everyone know that the Family Education program at Helping Services
for Youth & Families has allowed me to increase my own learning to teach my daughter, Isabella,
to learn new skills, including ways for her to use more words, be more confident, and to interact with other children and adults. This program has also increased my confidence in parenting and providing a safe and healthier home for our family.
My family educator, Marcia, has connected us to Early Access for speech and educational services. I have also been reconnected with vocational rehab services, and medical and mental health services for my own physical and mental health well-being, and Isabella’s well child exams. We have completed some problem solving on preparing healthier meals for the family, and talked about strategies for establishing routines, discipline and toileting.
I appreciate her help. I totally believe in the program, as everyone could use a little extra help in parenting sometimes.
Feeling more confident,
