Has your child been diagnosed with dyslexia? Specific learning disability? Language-based learning disability?
Please join us at the YES! Program’s Power of Self-Advocacy (POSA) event as we empower our students with the tools they need to be successful in the classroom and beyond. Students, parents and friends will learn basic facts about dyslexia and how to improve the educational experience using self-advocacy skills. Other topics including assistive technology and tips for managing the demands of school will be covered. Our methods have proven successful for many students who will share their first-hand experiences and answer questions from the audience. The student-led presentation will be followed by a fun activity for students and peer-to-peer mentoring while parents have an opportunity for discussion and networking. Light refreshments will be served.
This is a hands-on workshop, so students should come prepared with a laptop that has Google Slides, MS PowerPoint or other application that he/she is familiar with. Please have photos of your child with friends, family, pets and doing activities he/she enjoys such as sports and hobbies saved in a folder either on the laptop or Google Drive for easy access. Several example presentations will be shown and sample outlines provided before attendees create their own personal presentation. Students will leave the workshop with their own personal presentation that they can use in September to introduce themselves to their new teachers and explain what helps them be successful students.
