We are excited to announce a NEW social media video series, Parenting Tip Tuesday with LADC Behavioral Specialist, Dr. Jenna Edlund, where we will be highlighting parenting tips each month! 📚

This month, we're focusing on the behavioral tip "Selective Attention,” where Dr. Jenna encourages you to give your attention to positive behaviors to help increase their frequency, and ignore undesirable behaviors to achieve the opposite effect. 🌟

Watch the video now, and visit bit.ly/3ExrVjY to learn more and to view the parent handout. Let us know if you've utilized or plan to use Selective Attention in the comments! 💙
