Community Workshops & Events

We are committed to cultivating children’s confidence to pursue their path to success. We do this by expanding our benefits and sharing our expertise with parents, educators, and students in the greater community.

The recordings of our virtual workshops cover learning disabilities and attention disorder-related topics and are open to the public as a resource to the community. Workshops were presented by GLO staff, as well as outside experts who are recognized as authorities in learning disabilities and attention disorders.

GLO Parents Events: It’s Complicated: Kids, Technology, and Wellbeing

It’s Complicated: Kids, Technology, and Wellbeing
Presenter: Erin Walsh, M.A., Co-Founder, Spark & Stitch Institute
Wednesday, October 26 @ 9 am at GLO

Kids today experience the world in a state of “digital immersion” where the lines between offline and online experiences continue to blur. At the same time, parents are getting conflicting advice about the impact of technology on kids’ health and development. In this interactive and energizing presentation, Erin Walsh will use brain science, stories, and humor to cut through conflicting messages about screen time and kids. She will walk you through the latest evidence on topics like online cruelty and drama, over-use, multitasking, and mental health. You will leave with practical tools and strategies for monitoring, building trust, and being the media mentor that kids and teens desperately need to avoid risks and build on their digital strengths.
