    Reading Roadblock: Experience and Understand the Challenges of Reading
    Time for a change of perspective? It may be the key to helping struggling readers to thrive. This one-hour workshop helps parents to get inside the head of a child who “sees the world differently,” so to speak. Experience the frustration this student feels and begin to see why it is so hard for this type of child to learn in a “normal manner.” Parents explore proven techniques and strategies—based on possible reading challenges—that revolutionize the way they encourage students with learning disabilities to succeed and achieve. This workshop is presented by Learning Essentials’ Executive Director Wendy Taylor, M.Ed.
    New dates will be posted as they become available.

    Homework: That Was Easy!
    Do you, as a parent, find yourself dreading homework time as much as your child? Do you wish you could help your struggling learner find a new approach to reading, studying and setting a routine? You can!
    End the homework drama. In this one-hour workshop, parents learn hands-on tips to help their child get organized, set good study habits, and apply strategies proven to boost memory and comprehension. A brief questionnaire identifies the child’s learner type—Disorganized, Rusher, Procrastinator, Inattentive, Easily Frustrated or Avoider. Then parents are introduced to practical solutions that support and empower students fitting each profile. A successful, reduced-stress homework routine starts here!
    This workshop is presented by Learning Essentials’ Executive Director Wendy Taylor, M.Ed.
