Speaker Series Focuses on Students with Learning Difficulties

Frostig School, a program for students with learning difficulties in the San Gabriel Valley, launches its 2011 Speakers Series on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 7:00 p.m. The monthly series, which goes from February through May 2011, is specifically designed for parents who have concerns about their child’s future success.

The series kicks off with “Red Flags: Helping Parents Identify Indicators of Learning Disabilities,” led by Beverlee Paine and Andrea Lombardi, senior educational and community outreach consultants at Frostig.

•Is my child progressing in school as he/she should?

•What are signs that my child needs more support?

•What are the questions I should be asking at a Parent Conference?

•How can I support my child’s progress and success?

Future topics include:

March 8: “Tips for Parents: Helping Your Elementary-aged Child Make and Keep Friends”

April 12: “Building Blocks for Reading Success:  What You Need to Know to Improve Your Child’s Reading”

May 10: “Success Attributes:  Attributes that Lead to Success”
