Join Us for our May Workshops
Striving Higher: Transition to College
for Students with Learning Differences
Featuring Eric Endlich, Ph.D.
Psychologist and Educational Consultant
Wednesday, May 15 | 7-9pm
130 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA
Students who learn differently can thrive in college if they are well prepared. In this workshop we will discuss the skills needed for college success—academic, social, emotional, and organizational. The process for obtaining accommodations and services changes after graduation from high school, and students need to become self-advocates. We will also provide an overview of available supports, including gap year, college readiness, and mentoring programs. Questions are encouraged!
Topics covered will include:
- What is college readiness?
- How are accommodations handled in college?
- What are the options for support before and during college?
Dyslexia is a Superpower
Featuring Gibby Booth Jasper
Confidence Coach , Speaker, & Author
Thursday, May 23 | 7-9pm
220 Reservoir Street, Suite 6, Needham, MA
Join us for a fun, interactive evening where we will explore the positives dyslexia has to offer. Gibby will tell her personal dyslexic story and explain how she went from being embarrassed by and despising her dyslexia, to eventually accepting it, to now calling it her superpower. Throughout the evening Gibby will offer advice and tidbits for how to navigate your child’s dyslexia in the least stressful way possible.
Workshop participants will learn how to:
- How society’s (incorrect) view of dyslexia is likely affecting your child and what to do about it
- Suggestions for motivating and encouraging your child
- The importance of focusing on building your child’s confidence and some ways to do that
Admission is FREE, but space is limited and first come, first served. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience using the buttons above. Light refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
