Understanding Learning Difficulties

This free workshop for parents of students with learning difficulties (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia) is being repeated due to popular demand. Presented by educational and developmental psychologist Mandy Nayton for the Education andTraining Directorate, it will provide parents with a greater awareness and understanding of the impact learning difficulties can have on children of all ages.

The recently released Understanding Learning Difficulties: A Practical Guide for Parents will be reviewed and information will be provided on using the Guide effectively.

The workshop will also examine issues such as self-esteem and dyslexia-friendly schooling, to ensure parents and caregivers are better equipped to support students with learning difficulties both at home and through effective communication with schools.

Wednesday August 5, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the centre for Teaching and Learning, Stirling. RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 6205 7943.
