How to Unleash Your Child’s Hidden Potential – Portland

On Saturday, September 9th from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Charles and Conceição Solis of the REACH Family Institute will host a workshop on How to Unleash Your Child’s Hidden Potential.

This remarkable workshop focuses on the REACH Method of Holistic Brain Development, developed through Charles and Conceição Solis’ nearly 40 years of study, research, and clinical experience with children of all levels of ability throughout the world.

In this extraordinary workshop, Charles and Conceição explain child brain development during the first three years of life, teach you six best practices to accelerate your child’s development, and then explore special practices to transform the function of children with special needs. Parents gain a clear understanding of why children struggle, learn specific techniques to accelerate development, develop confidence in their parenting abilities and leave empowered to transform their child’s life!

Since parents are the first and most influential teachers a child will ever have, we invite you to attend this transformative workshop.

The REACH Method directly affects the development of the human brain; therefore, it applies to children across the spectrum of functional ability. Children with developmental disabilities (Autism, Asperger’s, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Dyslexia, Learning Disability, ADD/ADHD, Brain Injury, etc.) thrive on the REACH Method because it addresses the core reason for their challenges.

For more workshop details see information below.  Pre-registration is requested, seating is limited.
