Lost & Found: Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students, A Special Education Parent Book Club Event

Lost   Found Special Needs

Please join Christine Koehne, SRVSUD Special Education parent Liaison for a book club event to discuss: Lost & Found: Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students (and, While You're At It, All the Others) by Ross Greene, PhD.
This event will take place Friday, September 6th, 11:30am to 12:30pm at the Conference Room in Building E at the SRVUSD office on Old Orchard Road. Come learn with Christine and other parents how to begin this process with your own family. You don't have to have read the book to join in the conversation. We will discuss the first 40 pages only so please feel free to come, even if you haven't picked up the book yet.
This event is free. Please RSVP so we can plan the space.
This book offers a practical, compassionate, effective approach to helping students with behavioral challenges. We dive into Ross Greene's Collaborative and Proactive Solutions to help teach our most challenging students.
Lost and Found provides educators and parents concrete ways to collaborate and partner with students to help teach students how to effectively advocate for themselves in proactive ways. Using the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems, educators and parents can begin to identify where students have skills deficits help them work towards creating their own solutions alongside the adults in their lives.

Who We are

SRVCPTA Special Needs CommThe San Ramon Valley Council of PTA’s Special Needs Committee fosters collaboration among parents, teachers, schools, and the community to support children with special needs. Many schools have a Special Needs Committee Representative on their local PTA/PTSA who represents the school on our Council Committee, provides information back to the school, and may plan programs or get-acquainted gatherings for the school site. Your Dougherty Valley High School Special Needs Committee Representatives for 2018-19 are Anita Kant and Sanjog Kaur.

What We Do

  • Provide information and support to parents and staff so they can help children with special needs succeed.
  • Help ALL children and adults understand and appreciate challenges faced by children with special needs.
  • Work legislatively to secure and retain adequate laws and funding for children with special needs.
