If you were one of the more than 1,200 advisors who have participated in the Implement Now Virtual Summits in 2014 and 2015, you know I don’t mess around with lofty theories. I’ll have candid conversations with each expert, and you’ll get real tips you can use right away in your practice and your life. This summit is called Implement Now for a reason!
No flight delays, expensive hotels or airport transfers. You can “come as you are” and tune in from your favorite chair or that quiet spot at your office. My goal with this summit is to open up accessibility of experts and information that is often only available at major conferences. Plus, if you miss a broadcast, you’ll have your own personal access to the library of recordings once the summit is complete.
Every expert who participates shares with a genuine desire to improve the independent financial advice industry for everyone. The speakers do not get paid — they join me because we all want to see you, the independent advisor, stand out and succeed.
This year every time 25 advisors sign up for Implement Now, I will sponsor a one-day scholarship to the Child Mind Institute’s Brave Buddies program for a child and his or her parents. This revolutionary experience helped my daughter learn to “brave talk” and manage her anxiety. I want to help as many families as possible experience the power of this program.
When children are unable to speak around certain people or in certain settings, they may have an anxiety disorder called selective mutism (SM). It is common for kids with SM to be very chatty at home with family but silent at school.
Selective mutism is relatively rare so people, even pediatricians or other specialists, might not immediately recognize it, or might mistake it for autism or a communication or speech disorder. In reality children with SM are extremely anxious and cannot talk, even when they want to. Typically, kids with SM are mild mannered and polite in classroom settings, so their silence can be misinterpreted as shyness and never addressed. It’s not unusual for relatives to think a child with SM is “just being shy,” and will “grow out of it,” and they push even harder for a child to talk. But these kids are much more than shy—they’re frozen with anxiety.
Left untreated, selective mutism can cause children great suffering and significant impairment. It can interfere with kids’ performance at school, both academically and socially. It can prevent kids from asking for help when they need it, like telling the teacher they need to use the bathroom or getting help if they hurt themselves. And it can prevent kids from engaging in fun activities that may require verbal communication, like ordering ice cream or going on play dates. Instead, they suffer in silence. The good news is that with the right help, kids with SM can get better.
“Luckily, we had a pediatrician who was vaguely familiar with selective mutism. Unfortunately, she was uncertain of the right resources to help. That’s when I went online and found the Brave Buddies℠ Program at The Child Mind Institute. I knew immediately it would be exactly what Parker needed, and we booked our flights to New York. This innovative program had immediate impact on Parker’s confidence to brave talk despite her anxiety. I want every child who struggles with SM to be able find his or her voice. This year, every time 25 advisors sign up for Implement Now, I will sponsor a one-day scholarship to Brave Buddies for a child and his or her parents. ” ~ Kristin Harad
The Child Mind Institute’s Brave Buddies is an intensive group behavioral treatment program designed to help children ages 3 to 8 with selective mutism (SM) speak in school and other public places. The therapists create a classroom-like setting that offers children a safe environment to practice verbal participation or “brave talking.”
