Thursday, November 7: “TP15 Word Origins”
Explore the origins of the English language with a multimedia presentation and hands-on activity. Learn to identify the etymology of a word based on a few facts that will be enlightening. Why is this important, well for starters, if you know where the word originated, you are more likely to spell it correctly.
Saturday, November 9: “S20 Parenting Tips & Advocating for Our Children”
One size does not fit when parenting children with dyslexia. An array of tips will be offered to assist in providing a balanced environment where children are encouraged to be responsible, accountable and perseverant members of the community. This will be an interactive session to discuss parenting and advocacy roles with different types of students, so that we, as parents can assist in developing our charismatic and determined children into leaders of the future.
