As a parent, you may be wondering if you can manage your child’s technology use more effectively
There will be a free one hour workshop offered to parents, presented by Jessica Norman. Jessica is a researcher in Community Psychology, a doctoral candidate and licensed therapist with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. The research workshop offers a variety of methods to maximize children’s learning and minimize potential harm through media use.
