The Blaine school district is hosting a series of classes designed to help parents of students with special needs in the Blaine and Birch Bay communities.

The first class in the series will be held on Tuesday, February 28, and focus on helping parents create structured environments for children with Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Jayme Fergoda, a licensed independent clinical social worker based in Bellingham, will speak at 5:30 p.m. in the Blaine Middle School library.

The second class, slated for April 17, will focus on ways parents of children with autism spectrum disorders can provide effective instructional and parental support at home. Dr. Nancy Rosenberg, a certified behavioral specialist based at the University of Washington, will speak at 5:30 p.m. in the Blaine Middle School library.

Refreshments will be provided at both meetings, as will child care. The classes are made possible through a grant from the Whatcom County Department of Health.
