Workshop for parents of children with learning difficulties

Learn how to deal with school issues, handling homework and classroom dynamics

It’s back-to-school time and that can mean back-to-stress time, especially for parents whose kids struggle in school academically or socially.

The Cote St. Luc Public Library is partnering with educator and specialist Birdie Goodman to host a workshop for parents, caregivers and educators that focuses on giving them the tools they need to support children with “learning differences.” This talk may help parents of kids with ADD or autism as well as children who have trouble making friends, or struggle academically. For many children, back to school (and the return of homework) can be a hard time of year, but for children with learning challenges, it’s especially difficult.

Goodman is an educational consultant with more than 35 years experience. She will give parents practical tips and resources on dealing with difficulty in school, handling homework, and helping kids navigate the classroom. She aims to help  parents whose children are struggling but can’t identify the problem, as well as parents of children with specific disabilities.

The hour-long workshop will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 7 p.m to 8 p.m. To register, email childrendept@cotesaintluc.org. People must register in advance as space is limited.
