Like all students, students with language-based learning disabilities can lose ground over the summer months. Many parents ask how to best help their children maintain (and even improve) their language/literacy skills when they are not in school.
We will discuss direct interventions, activities, games, and experiences that can pave the way for continued success in the new school year.
The WLDA and 3LI welcome you to the second session in their new series, Parents and Professionals Learning and Networking (PPLAN). The aims of PPLAN are to:
1) Provide parents with opportunities for learning about hot topics relative to learning disabilities, and
2) Provide parents and their K-12 children with opportunities to network and connect with other parents and children who are navigating the world of learning disabilities.
