Although dysgraphia has always been identified as a 'related disorder' in the Texas Education Code it is still fairly recent in its recognition as a learning difficulty. This seminar for parents will address various aspects of dysgraphia to include - definition, related terminology, how it relates to dyslexia, and considerations for instruction.

Dr. Brenda Taylor has a wide and deep experience in education as a teacher, an educational diagnostician, a dyslexia specialist, and an educational consultant. She is a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) with a License as a Texas Dyslexia Therapist (LDT). She has also served as the State Dyslexia Consultant.

The abrupt transition to distance learning last school year was difficult for schools, educators, parents, and students alike. Workloads were lightened, grades were inflated, comprehensive exams were canceled, and many students felt like summer started two months early. The need for strong executive functioning skills in order for children to find success in this new educational paradigm made it especially difficult for kids with learning differences. What can parents do to make sure this fall is not a repeat of last spring?

Evan Weinberger, President & CEO of Staying Ahead of the Game and long-time friend of Neuhaus Education Center, will share tips to parents of all ages about how to maintain a healthy, happy, and productive household during these unprecedented times. All participants will leave with new ideas they can implement immediately at home. Evan will also be answering questions following the presentation.
