Past 2017-2018 WLS Events:
“Walking in the Shoes of a Child with Learning Disabilities”
In conjunction with the Trinity University School Psychology Program
Took place on Saturday, September 16, 2017
On Saturday, September 16, parents, teachers, university students, and others experienced the disorienting world of dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other learning differences. Using mirrors and other tools, graduate students from Trinity University guided participants as they try to read, do arithmetic, and other academic tasks. To most, this is a powerful experience that solicited compassion, respect, and tearful emotion for anyone who faces such challenges 24 hours a day.
“Teaching the Child who Learns Differently”
Led by Winston Faculty Members
Took place on Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Winston faculty members presented an overview of learning disabilities and specific strategies to help students with learning disabilities become more successful in school. Please feel free to view the 2017 presentation.
