Workshop Overview

This workshop is targeted at parents, caregivers, and/or family members of children with learning disabilities.  This workshop will provide a greater awareness and understanding of the impact learning disabilities can have on children.  Attendees will review the recently released Understanding Learning Difficulties: A Guide for Parents and be provided with advice on effectively using this resource to assist people with learning difficulties.  The workshop will also take a look at issues such as self-esteem and dyslexia-friendly schools to ensure parents and caregivers are better equipped to support those with learning difficulties both at home and through effective communication with schools.
