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.
Beverly W. Rich is an advanced practice nurse with more than twenty-eight years of experience as an outpatient therapist. She leads programs at Bradley Hospital and serves as an adjunct professor at Rhode Island College.
She will be speaking about resources parents can explore when their child is struggling academically, socially, or behaviorally, with a specific focus on when to consider medication for your child and how to assess effectiveness.
