St. Luke’s Presents Series On Raising Special Needs Children

October 17, 2008

The St. Luke’s Center for Counseling and Life Enrichment is partnering with the ESCAPE Family Resource Center to offer a seven-week class series titled, “Exceptional Parenting,” focusing on the issues involved with raising a special needs child. Set to begin Nov. 5, the classes will be held each 10 a.m.-noon each Wednesday through Dec. 17 at the St. Luke’s Counseling Center, 2719 Edloe. The classes are free.

“More parenting classes and learning opportunities for parents have been consistently requested since we opened the Center in March,” said Amy Birchill, director, Center for Counseling and Life Enrichment at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. “In keeping with our goal of providing programs that will enrich people’s lives, it is our hope that these classes will offer support to parents and continue building strong community bonds. We continue to partner with other local organizations in sending the message to the community that help is there when you need it, and no one has to experience life’s challenges alone.”

There are also plans to offer other ESCAPE Center classes including “Families and Divorce,” and “Building Confident Families” at the Counseling Center in the near future.

To register for the “Exceptional Parenting” class or for more information about the other classes available, call the Escape office at 713-942-9500 or view
