Educator Workshops

Where we Train. Empower. Teach. 

 

Are you interested in learning more about how to teach children with learning differences? Educator Workshop opportunities are for educators who work directly with children (teachers, administrators, youth workers, counselors, youth advocates, practitioners). Our workshops are designed to equip educators with research-proven practices to best assist children with learning differences.

What are learning differences?

What strategies can I use to teach my student who has a learning difference?

How is a learning difference identified in a student?

What steps can I take to identify if my student has a learning difference?
