Canyons Family Center helps families cope with challenges

Parenting doesn’t come with a book of instructions on how to help families deal with challenging issues like autism, ADHD, and divorce – but the Canyons Family Center can help.

The Canyons Family Center, 8449 S. 150 West, provides help to parents and families in Canyons District by offering counseling, support groups and education classes. All of the Center’s services are offered at no charge.

Starting in January, the center will launch a six-week series of specialty classes aimed at helping parents and children tackle life’s challenges and relieve stress.

The following specialty classes will take place starting Tuesday, Jan. 19 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.:

  • Superheroes children’s group: A class for students in third- through sixth-grades who are diagnosed with high-functioning autism or autism spectrum disorders. Each session provides practice of one social skill through group activities.
  • Relax and manage your stress: A class designed to teach specific and helpful strategies to manage stress and practice mindfulness.
  • Effective parenting: A class for parents and caregivers, designed to give parents positive parenting strategies that have been proven to be successful.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder parenting supports: This support group will give parents strategies to deal with a child diagnosed with high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, or pervasive developmental disorder.

The following 6:30-8:30 p.m. specialty classes will take place starting Wednesday, Jan. 20:

  • Banana Splits, adivorce class for kids: A class for students in third- through sixth-grades to help aid students in coping with the changes that come from divorce.
  • Parenting the ADHD child: A class for families struggling with parenting children with ADHD.

More information on specialty classes, as well as regularly scheduled 3-week classes regarding anger management, truancy and early development, can be found on the Canyons Family Center web page. To register for a class, please call 801-826-8190.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
