Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in PreSchool

presented by Kris Bliss, Manager Children’s Center

Wednesday, April 24, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. – CTL Workshop Room; Course#001898, Session #0001

Most of us have heard of the book Everything I Needed to Know About Life I Learned in Kindergarten.  I propose that for many of us, these skills were actually learned in preschool.  This short session will provide insight into what important life skills those of us who attended preschool learned. We will also learn and/or discuss how to look at the world from a child’s perspective – allowing us to think differently.

Special Education (SPED) Students: The Transition from High School to College

presented by Joseph DePinto, Adjunct Faculty Social Work

Monday, April 29, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – CTL Workshop Room; Course #001898, Session #0002

Many SPED students enter the community college system as their first foray into post-secondary education. They are coming from a setting with comprehensive support services and sometimes feel lost in the self-directed world of a college campus. How can we help these students make a smooth transition?
