The 2014 symposium is going to be a great one! Our speaker line up includes Dr. Ray Scardina, child/adolescent psychiatrist; Ron Roberts, private practice counselor; and Kim Paetzel, TISD Facilitator of Section 504. We could not find better speakers to present our symposium, "Living Well with ADDitude" to help parents, teachers, childcare providers and anyone who is caring for a child with ADD/ADHD deal with the daily challenges.
Parent Services Center, Inc. was founded in 1988 and exists to strengthen and support families and our community. It is a local, pro-active, non-profit United Way agency which provides parents and those who work with children the educational opportunities, resources and support necessary to raise children who can become healthy, contributing members of society. When families are supported and helped early, many tragedies can be prevented and costs to the individuals, family, and society can be greatly reduced. A healthy family will instill values and behaviors in their children which will influence future generations. Our purpose is to strengthen families and our community.
Parent Services Center has been evaluated according to 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability and has met all of these standards and is a BBB Accredited Charity. The BBB Accredited Charity logo helps inform the public that Parent Services Center meets these standards and participates in the accreditation program.

Volunteer instructors are the heart of the Parent Services' parenting programs which exist to strengthen and support families. The professionals who willingly share their expertise with parents, foster parents, childcare providers, and teachers of our community are invaluable.
But we need more of them! Counselors, teachers, child development specialists, psychologists, therapists, and anyone with training in the area of parenting are needed. Your skills, education, and professional qualifications and experience could make a difference in the life of a family.
