Professional Development

With the Department of Education focusing on the unique educational needs of children with dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, the Stern Center for Language and Learning, in partnership with The Greenwood School, is pleased to offer a symposium series on these learning differences.

The series, which begins March 18th, consists of three workshops focusing on the latest research and strategies for each of these special education eligibility areas.

Workshop Schedule

On March 18, 2016, we will be offering a workshop on Dyscalculia: what it is, indicators from student work, and how we can provide support for students with dyscalculia and other math difficulties.

On April 15, 2016, we will be offering a workshop on Dyslexia: reviewing the history of the term, its status in the law, early signs of risk, and what educators can do to ensure that all children learn to read.

On May 13, 2016, we will be offering a workshop on Dysgraphia: what we know about the writing process and the skills that make communication in print possible.

Workshops run from 9:00 AM-3:30 PM on The Greenwood School campus.  Each workshop costs $125 each or save $75 and register for all three.  Click here to register.
