Each year, the Winston School San Antonio and its Medical-Scientific Advisory Committee work diligently to plan the Winston Annual Learning Symposium—an educational event that provides the community with access to cutting-edge research and tools to help educate students with learning differences. The Learning Symposium allows us to extend Winston’s reach by providing important information to parents, mental health, healthcare, and education professionals from the local community and across the state. Each year, the event features a nationally-renowned professional and breakout sessions that are hosted by a select group of local professionals.
