LEAF Initative

LEAF (Learning Education & Assistance For Families) began as an idea by SMS parents with similar experiences and challenges. This idea was cultivated and soon developed into an organization that will help our community grow together in understanding learning differences among children.

Together we can support one another by providing ideas, information, resources and a place to connect with other families on a similar journey.

Please join us for an upcoming Speaker Series!

“Connecting with the Connected Generation:  Parenting in the Age of Screens.” 

Speaker:  Dr. Kristen Ohlenforst
Date: Tuesday, September 11th 
Time: 7pm – 8:30pm
Location: Family Center Upper Lounge Room 201

Join Dr. Ohlenforst for a thoughtful discussion on how to better understand and respond to your child’s need to connect.  In her presentation, she’ll review key changes in your child’s developing brain, and how these changes influence your child’s interests, choices, and decision-making.  After highlighting current research on screen time, she’ll offer helpful tools and strategies for how you — as a mindful parent — can help your child foster healthy interpersonal relationships and increased self-awareness.
