This month, Austin Independent School District will host two free parent workshops, one in North Austin and one in South Austin, to focus on the development of middle school students and help parents and educators learn what they can do to support their children during the transition to middle school.
The workshops are free to attend and will be led by Dr. Michael J. Nakkula and Dr. Eric Toshalis, co-authors of the book Understanding Youth: Adolescent Development for Educators. Snacks and childcare will be available at the workshop.
