Wouldn’t it be great to know what your grandparent’s first home was like? What about how she spent her summers growing up? We have created a user friendly online process for grandparents and parents to write about their lives. The content is then published in a book dedicated to their children or grandchildren. It is so meaningful for kids to know about their families. I also know it gives the “author” pleasure (and let’s face it – something to do right now at home!) to write their memories.
For Love of Children (FLOC) mission is to provide educational support and services beyond the classroom to help students succeed from second grade through college and career. We offer intervention tutoring programs meant for students who are behind in reading and/or math. Our tutors start where the students are to help build their foundational skills in these subjects. After 28 hours, students can regain at least 1 year of grade level proficiency. We work exclusively with the DC population by teaching, empowering and transforming students’ lives through our Neighborhood Tutoring Program. Along with coaching through college and career readiness in our City Leaders program.
Au pair coordinator for MD, DC, and VA. I love to help people find an amazing match for their family.
Hello DC Area Moms! My name is Claudia Smistek and I am a research assistant at BL2. We are doing a research project on how children learn over time. Here is more information listed below if you are interested:
Are you interested in how children learn? We at the Brain and Language Center for Neuroimaging (BL2) are too! We are part of the National Science Foundation and Gallaudet University’s Science of Learning Center, Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2). In our BL2 Center, we are conducting a study on how [deaf and hearing children] learn, particularly in the areas of language, reading, and other higher cognitive functions (attention and emotion).
We are recruiting children [that have no hearing loss, use hearing aids, or use cochlear implants]. [Both monolingual (English) or bilingual (English/ASL) who will soon enter the 1st grade are invited to participate]. We will test them before and after their first year of primary schooling. Our studies are designed to be a fun opportunity for both parents and children.
Children will play science games while we measure their brain activity using harmless light (safe with hearing aids and cochlear implants) and their temperature using a thermal camera (touchless). This study has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board at Gallaudet University. Participation is entirely voluntary.
We will pay $20 per hour for your participation and travel to/from our BL2 Center. Children will also receive a small toy!
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to call our lab at (202) 618-6808 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
If you are in the midst of a significant life transition, a stressful change, a daunting medical diagnosis, or a painful loss, I am glad you found my page. Perhaps you are caring for a loved one, and find yourself mentally and physically exhausted, or you’re a health care professional feeling overwhelmed. Or maybe you are about to embark on treatment for cancer or another illness, and are struggling with a tangled ball of emotions. In my work with clients, I create a safe space to unpack and explore these issues, and to be a companion on your journey toward healing, growth, and transformation. Whatever brought you here today: I am here to listen. My specialties are counseling adults of all ages (from college-aged to elders) who are experiencing a medical illness, grief, loss, and/or trauma, family caregivers taking care of a sick or elderly loved one, and health care workers. I have 15+ year experience counseling adults who are coping with a diagnosis of cancer, HIV/AIDS, & other chronic illnesses. I strive to be warm, affirming, and culturally sensitive, and I am personally rooted in a desire for social justice. When I am not with clients or my family, I am a busy activist & volunteer in the gun violence prevention movement, in my faith community, & at my daughter’s school. I’m located in Brookland and Dupont Circle and available by a secure teletherapy platform. I look forward to hearing your story.

The U.S. Chess Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission of teaching students, especially at-risk youth, to play chess in order to improve their academic and social skills.
The U.S. Chess Center’s teaching methods are fun and effective. Our nationally certified chess teachers help students become creative, enjoy learning, and pursue their passions. We emphasize problem-solving over memorization; as our students learn to think independently, they achieve success and develop well-earned senses of accomplishment. We provide students from throughout the Washington metropolitan area opportunities to meet as friends and equals over the chessboard at our classes, tournaments, and special events.
Not only have our students become champions in chess (winning more than 50 state and national championship titles), they also have used chess to accomplish their academic and life goals. Two of our students earned Rhodes Scholarships and hundreds earned academic scholarships. See where our students have gone to college.
Since 1992, we have taught chess to nearly 40,000 students and at over 150 schools across the National Capital Region. View a map of the schools and places where we have taught chess or held events over the past 30 years.
Our goals include:
- Improving academic skills.
- Increasing children’s attention spans.
- Teaching young people that they have control over much of their environment, so that the decisions that they make will have consequences in the future, even if not all of those consequences are immediately apparent.
- Bringing together students from a wide range of backgrounds in a safe, fun setting.
- Increasing students’ self-confidence.
- Awakening an interest in learning and achievement in students of all ages.
- Improving the resiliency of youths so that they avoid negative temptations.
ISMA Children’s Program
Using elements of yoga, tai chi, dance, gymnastics, and Pilates, the children find themselves jumping, bouncing, balancing peacefully, moving rhythmically… enhancing their motor skills, coordination, and endurance… they become aware of their breath, proper skeletal alignment, the flow of their energy, and the use of their imaginations. The boys and girls also learn to read Labanotation, the written language of movement.
