We also know that educators and caregivers alike are busy, overwhelmed and looking for support during this challenging time. They deserve online sessions that bring science, affirmation, and strategies that will help them navigate the unique stressors of this moment. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools, companies, and organizations must lead by finding new and creative ways to partner with families.

We work with parents, professionals, and schools to spark understanding of brain development and stitch insight to practice. Your time and attention is precious. Parent engagement nights and professional development days shouldn’t just be check-the-box events, they should be informative, practical, and moving. Let us know how our guest speakers can add value to your work helping kids and teens thrive.
What audiences say:
“As an Employee Resource Group leader I would highly recommend Erin and the Spark and Stitch Institute as a resource for supporting caregiver employees. Erin was incredibly engaging and empathetic in her sessions while rooting all of her work in science. Our community valued hearing the research backed findings to help support what’s happening at home. In this odd time of 2020 Erin brought everyone some sense of calm and understanding.”

“Erin Walsh is a fantastic guest speaker and I recommend her without reservation. She knows her content and delivers it convincingly and tactfully. Her style is dynamic and methodical. The audience found her to be highly engaging. If you are considering Erin for your events I have full confidence that you will be as pleased as I am.”

“Erin Walsh presented information about adolescent brain development and the effects of media on our children. As a behavioral pediatrician, I found her presentation to be incredibly informative and well delivered, making complex and difficult information palatable and understandable. All of our parents were completely engaged during her lecture and found it very impactful for them as to how they would approach parenting their teens in this time of technologically-driven culture. We (parents) are still talking about her presentation. “
– Dr. Timothy Johanson
“Cargill brings in many speakers to talk to employees about important issues. Erin Walsh ranks with the best. She delivered great information and practical advice in an engaging style. Not many speakers can connect with the audience and leave them wondering where the time went!”
