The SINAI Families Digital Safety and Citizenship Program

Over the years, we have found that our students (regardless of age or profiles) are particularly vulnerable to unhealthy and unsafe relationships with technology. Through The SINAI Families Digital Safety and Citizenship Program, we partner with parents to help arm their children with the information and skills necessary to engage with technology in a positive and productive manner. Janell Burley Hofmann, a world renowned expert on Digital Citizenship and Safety, works with us to create a meaningful dialogue with our entire SINAI community.

Janell has created a digital safety and citizenship curriculum for SINAI Schools, to create a common language with which we support our students. Periodically throughout the year, she visits our schools and meets with our students to discuss digital safety, and she works with our educational staff and therapists on an ongoing basis to address the changing and varied needs of our students.

Janell welcomes questions and follow-up from parents, and is available to discuss digital safety concerns. To reach her, please email
