Doing Transitions Well: Theirs and Yours, Too!

Speakers: Leann Carrozzo, Spec Ed Paraprofessional
Melissa King, MBA, Certif in College Counseling

Transitions are part of life, challenges and growth. The discussion will center on major points of transition (K to 1st; 3-4th; elementary to middle; middle to high school; HS to vocational training, college, gap year and/or work) that both you and your child/teen will experience, albeit in different ways. Consider perspectives, tips and resources to help you navigate with knowledge, confidence and calm.

Nature and Needs of the Dyslexic Learner

Nancy Redding, M.Ed. - Certified Member, Orton-Gillingham Academy

Don’t be stymied with a diagnosis of dyslexia, but rather understand what it is and implies, what type of instruction is most effective, how to work with the school, and especially what strategies you can use at home to best support your child/teen with dyslexia or other related educational challenges. Become aware of AB 1369, the new dyslexia law in California, and what differences it may make.

CANCELLED - LD Simulation plus Talk on Accommodations

 We have to cancel this event due to a small number signups.


LD Simulation: If you haven’t participated in one of these experiential sessions, now is the time to “get” what a student with LD and/or ADHD feels daily in school and at home. Experience directly through this learning disability simulation* different types of learning challenges. Parents, relatives and educators will be better able to advocate for and support their child/student.

What and when should be the next steps in piecing together what is truly going on in your child/teen with LD and/or ADHD challenges?
