Welcome to Julie Billiart Schools, a family of K-8 coeducational, independent day schools for children with learning differences.Overview
When you take better care of yourself, you provide better care to those you love, as well as those in your care. Parents and caregivers of those with learning, mental, and physical differences understand burnout better than anyone. Our friends at Courage to Caregivers have teamed up with us to present this live breathing meditation for anyone who needs to pause, notice, reflect, and reset. In addition to learning a breathing technique, and a short meditation focused on compassion fatigue, Courage to Caregivers will share the science behind the stress reduction benefits of meditation. This exercise will help participants feel grounded, supported, and more at ease.
Courage to Caregivers provides hope, support, and courage to caregivers and loved ones of those living with mental illness. They provide one-to-one caregiver peer support, breathing meditation classes, support groups, and educational resources. Cathy Varley is one of Courage to Caregivers Breathing Meditation Facilitators. She is a Certified Yoga Instructor RYT-200 and Reiki level II practitioner. She enjoys teaching all types of yoga, especially trauma-sensitive, restorative, and yoga for teens.
Attendees will walk away with:
A feeling of peace in the middle of a busy day
Easy breathing techniques to cope and manage stress
A better understanding of compassion fatigue and the scientific benefits of caregiver stress reduction
They have all the resources necessary, specialized to the individual learning of each child, and the heart that goes with it. I don't think we would have stayed in Ohio if it wasn't for JB!
I don’t think I will ever be able to put into words how grateful I am that you saw my daughter for all that she is today and all that she is yet to become.
My kids love everything about JB and look forward to going to school every day and seeing their friends and teachers. JB is truly a one of a kind school enriching young lives everyday.
Julie Billiart Schools has helped my child become a better version of himself. The teachers and therapists at JB really know and understand how to reach children who learn differently.
Julie Billiart Schools gave us hope after our daughter was diagnosed with a learning disability. At JB, she thrived in the small classes, received necessary therapies, and developed the self-confidence to ask for help when she needed it.
All of the teachers and staff at JB are patient and willing to take the extra time to make sure we, as parents, understand and are comfortable.
