Parents with concerns about their children’s behavior might benefit from the November parent workshop hosted by Encompass. The “Is it a Quirk or a Concern?” workshop, offered at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 21 at Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, 35018 SE Ridge St. Snoqualmie may help address those worries.

While it is normal for young children to reach developmental milestones at different ages, some children display signs or loss of skills which may indicate a developmental delay.

In this workshop, parents can get important information about “red flags” in early childhood development, as well as what local resources are available if a child needs further assessments. Early detection and treatment is the best way to help children with delays to progress and catch up with their typically-developing peers.

Register in advance at goencompassnw.org. Childcare is available, provided by the YMCA. No preregistration is required for childcare.

For more information, contact Sandra “Sam” Sinanan at (425) 888-2777 ext. 1226 or send email to sandra.sinanan@encompassnw.org.
