A workshop for parents of children with learning disabilities
Nearly 3 million school-age children, receiving special education services in public schools across America are identified as having a specific learning disability. Struggling to cope with the demands of school and everyday life, far too many of these children lose motivation and confidence in their ability to succeed. All children need support and intervention, but it is especially critical for those with learning disabilities. Many well-meaning parents are unprepared to help. This project proposes a workshop for parents of children with learning disabilities that will provide a forum in which parents can acquire relevant information about learning disabilities, interventions and accommodations, communication and collaboration skills, and the IEP process. Instructional materials will be provided to facilitate parent involvement and student success.
