As parents, our plates are full of daily challenges. Among them is creating the right environment at home for learning. The reality is that we are the FIRST teacher each of our children has. Many times, we have no idea what a good learning enviornment should look like at home once they begin school. Sometimes we look to online sources such as the article on the LD site Helping Young Children with Learning Disabilities at Home http://www.ldonline.org/article/5880/ for ideas. Other times, we do what we can and try to learn what works best with our child. If you are like many parents, you have more than one child. Having more than one child means that multiple strategies must be used.
Well, realizing that this is a struggle, Akron Public Schools has a workshop coming in Ocotober to help parents with this task. On Wednesday, October 23, 2013 6 pm-7 pm, Dr. Russell J. Quaglia, founder and president of the Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations and Dr. James Carter, former superintendent in Selma, Alabama for an evening on this topic. The presentation will be done at East Community Learning Center located at 80 Brittain Rd in Akron. This presentation is open to all parents of APS students.
