Ages & Stages
It’s not clear at what age kids begin to dream, but even toddlers may speak about having dreams — pleasant ones and scary ones. Nightmares aren’t completely preventable, but parents can take steps to set the stage for a peaceful night’s rest. That way, when nightmares do creep in, a little reassurance and comfort from you can quickly restore your child’s peace of mind.
Choosing a school for a child with unique learning needs can be overwhelming; often the hardest part is knowing where to start. While every family will make decisions based on their child’s individual needs and circumstances, these common considerations — including therapies, communication, family support, and more — can help guide you through the process.

On Wednesday, preschoolers at The Goddard School in Jackson Township and Highland Heights kicked off the 7th annual Root for Earth initiative. While the children learn about eco-friendly topics throughout the year, this week especially celebrates learning about the environment and what it means to be a good environmental steward.
Musical Fingers offers Summer Classic Rock and Contemporary Christian Rock camps with the same goals at its year-round music therapy and music education classes: let kids have a blast creating music, elevate their self-esteem and instill a deep-seated love for music; and help special needs individuals transform their dis-ability into ability.
