Welcome to Kids’ Turn! Kids’ Turn is a child-oriented educational program for Las Vegas area families in the process of reorganization due to separation, divorce, or changes in custody or visitation. Children and their parents attend a series of four 90-minute workshops. At each location, we offer two parallel parent groups so that parents may attend the same dates (if they so choose) while being placed in separate groups. Children ages 5-16 meet in groups with other young people their own age. Workshops are scheduled at times convenient for families on weeknight evenings at various locations throughout the Las Vegas area.
Workshops are taught by qualified professionals with backgrounds in education and mental health. All participants who successfully complete the program will receive a Certificate of Completion and Kids’ Turn will forward a copy of the certificate to the court.
Kids’ Turn is for Kids! During Kids’ Turn classes, the children interact with peers who are experiencing similar circumstances in their family. These classes provide children with an opportunity to learn about their feelings and the divorce process through art projects, games, books, and class discussion as well as an interactive newsletter that is shared with the parents. Children are placed in developmentally age appropriate classes ranging from 5-7, 8-10 and 11-16. A parent’s paid registration includes the registration of any children in the family ages 5-16. Year after year, children consistently report benefitting from the program and enjoying the groups. Kids’ Turn is a research based curriculum which was chosen specifically for the Las Vegas area because children are incorporated into the workshop classes. Once you are registered, we will send you a more detailed outline of the children’s curriculum material with your confirmation letter. Las Vegas area Judges look favorably upon cases in which the children who are involved participate. The classes are taught by trained professionals who work in education and mental health. Outcomes that result from children’s and youth participation are very positive and past feedback includes these youth reports: We look forward to serving you in the Kids’ Turn program and hope that your experience is both positive and rewarding. Thank you.
