DS Challenge Success is set to host Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair, Ed.D., presenting on “The Impact Technology and Social Media have on Youth & Families.” The program is scheduled for Tuesday, February 26, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Dover-Sherborn High School’s Mudge Auditorium.
Author of the award-winning book “The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age,” Dr. Steiner-Adair examines ways in which the wonders of technology and media also change how children learn and grow, and shows parents and educators how to reap the benefits of tech while reducing the risks it poses at every stage of child development. In “The Big Disconnect” and in her work internationally as a speaker and consultant, Dr. Steiner-Adair identifies digital age challenges for parents and educators, and ways to strengthen children’s social and emotional development to help them grow to be responsible, resilient, confident, and capable young adults. In her book, as in her keynote presentations, Dr. Steiner-Adair shares real-life stories from her clinical practice and her work with educators, experts, parents, and children, including extensive interviews with students from pre-school through high school and beyond.
