Staying Well Virtual Workshop: Supporting Students with Dyslexia
Tuesday, November 28, 2023, 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
Does your smart child struggle with reading, writing, or mathematics? If so, we can help you help your child or teen. Children and adolescents with a Specific Learning Disability such as dyslexia may also struggle with low self-esteem, self-regulation, and school anxiety. In this free, interactive session for caregivers that know or suspect their child has dyslexia, we will be providing information on assessment, strategies and interventions that set your child up for academic success at school and beyond.
Registration for the following upcoming Staying Well Workshops has not opened yet. Check back to this web page for updates closer to the Workshop date. The virtual workshop will take place on Teams. A link will be sent a few days prior to workshop.
