SESI Offers Creative Resources to Keep Students Learning and Engaged at Home Over the Summer

Materials are Specifically Designed to Assist Parents of Children with Behavioral and Learning Issues

CAMDEN, N.J., July 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialized Education Services, Inc. (SESI), a premier provider of education services for K-12 students who face challenges that prevent them from being successful in a traditional classroom, today announced its comprehensive resources for families to help aid learning at home.

Stay-at-home orders created a nationwide lifestyle change. As families remain more involved in their child’s education than ever before, SESI is providing tools to help them successfully navigate this new normal.

“We realize that without the day-to-day structure of school during the summer months, it may be challenging to keep children occupied,” said Andrea Vargas, president, SESI. “This is especially true for families who have children with special needs. SESI developed these resources for parents to help them maintain structure and motivation at home.”

SESI launched several helpful resources for families, including direct access to behavior experts, free downloads with tips on keeping children engaged and keeping expectations realistic, and a video series featuring expert advice from SESI professionals, ranging from teachers and social workers to therapists and counselors.

The videos include:

Maintaining Structure at Home
This two-part video series explains why establishing a new routine at home and creating an engaging learning environment are important factors in a student’s academic and behavioral success.

Motivating Students Through Choice
This four-part series offers insight into how to make children’s days run more smoothly and productively while encouraging child participation.

Alleviating Boredom Without Losing Sight of Education Goals
This two-part video series shares ways to turn everyday activities into educational lessons to make learning more fun.

“We want families to feel empowered to help their children succeed outside of the classroom,” said Vargas. “Families can use the suggested activities and strategies to embed, enhance, and encourage learning and growth all summer long.”
