“Guiding Parents Through Children’s Learning Differences”

A Parent Workshop presented by the Slingerland Institute for Literacy

Saturday, February 15, 2020

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The identification of a child’s learning difference has impacts beyond the student’s academic needs. In addition to the implications for the student, parents often have questions about how to best support their child. This presentation will lead parents through understanding learning differences, the academic and emotional impacts that they can have, and how to partner with your child's school to implement appropriate supports and interventions.

Topics to be covered include:

·Identification of Learning Differences, Progress Monitoring, and Diagnostic Assessment

·Supporting Children in the Development of Oral Language Skills, Written Language Skills and Reading Skills

·Advocating, Seeking Help, and Supporting Children to Trust Themselves and Reach Understanding and Acceptance
