Teens: What is Normal?

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Being a teen is difficult. Being the parent of a teen is difficult. For a parent of, or a teenager with, developmental, neurological, emotional or learning challenges, however, these years can be downright hard, frustrating and confusing! What is “normal” adolescent behavior anyway? When should one worry? How is a parent or student supposed to figure this out?

Join SEPAC (Special Education Parent/Professional Advisory Council) Wed, April 25, from 7 - 9 p.m., at the Northshore School District Administrative Center (3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell), to meet with experts who deal with these conundrums every day!

SEPAC welcomes Tricia King and Lisa Kieffer (Northshore School District mental health specialists) to discuss the tasks and stages of typical adolescent development, explain how those tasks and stages can be made more complex for teens who also face developmental, neurological, emotional and learning challenges, and provide some strategies and resources on how to cope.
