Parents of Students with Learning Differences

Open to all parents with children with learning differences

In 2014, Gordon began organizing opportunities for parents with children with learning differences to gather and share and discuss their experiences.

The meetings provide parents with an opportunity to discuss the challenges and rewards of having a child with a learning difference, specifically in regards to Gordon but also the experience of parenting a child with a learning difference in general.  

This group meets quarterly, and all parents are invited to attend. The meetings are facilitated by the school psychologist, and the Lower School and Middle School learning specialists, as well as members of the school's academic administration, attend all meetings. At some meetings, professionals in the field have been invited to come to present their perspectives.
