Where we Train. Empower. Teach.

Are you interested in learning more about how to support children with learning differences? Parent Workshops are for persons (biological relatives, non-biological relatives, extended family, community members) connected to K-8th grade children with learning differences. Our workshops are designed to equip families with research-proven practices to best assist children with learning differences.

Parent Workshops are offered at no cost to de Paul families and $20 for community members, educators, or other interested parties.
