Where’s PEAK?: A Look at PEAK Activities & Events

With the autumnal equinox just days away signs of fall are everywhere in Colorado.  You might be thinking about the optimal time to plan an afternoon drive or picnic to see the Aspen leaves make their transition from green to yellow to brilliant shades of orange and red. In the morning you may have your heater on as you commute to work or drop the kids off at school.  In the afternoon you switch over to the AC; Colorado fall brings drastic variations!

That also means that the transition from summer to the school routine is settling in and you may need some support or direction.  Parents, educators and self-advocates have no fear. PEAK Parent Center has your back! From direct support from one of our trained parent advisors, to workshops across the state, to webinars on numerous topics (all FREE services PEAK provides) you are sure to find what you need. Here’s a summary of where we’ll be for the remainder of the month:
