Tech Tune Up: Tips for Technology Use in High School
August 8, 2017, 6:30-8:30pm
Parents and children have much to consider as they start a new school year, especially the beginning of high school. Students with learning disabilities and ADHD have the added stress of making sure they have appropriate technology to support the rigor of the high school workload. When a student has tools to accommodate organization, planning, reading comprehension, written output, and memory aides, anxiety is reduced, and confidence soars.
Barbara Hunter, Springer’s Technology Integration Specialist, invites parents and their entering 9th or 10th grade students, to attend this session designed to familiarize the family on what tech tools are available to support struggling learners on a Google, Apple, or Windows platform.
Pathway to College Admissions for Student with LD and ADHD
Fall 2017, Specific Date and Time TBD
College admissions can be a long and confusing process for any student. Students with learning disabilities and ADHD have even more steps to follow on their path to admissions. Families of entering 9th and 10th grade students are invited to attend this program that spells out the yearly steps families must take to make it to the end goal of college.
An abundance of information, checklists, and resources will be provided to ensure that families have a clear and organized plan for the next four years. Both parents and students are encouraged to attend together.
Parents find it invaluable when they gain the ability to understand their child as a learner, advocate for their child when academic challenges arise, and work with the school to accomplish academic success for their child.
Springer's parent classes give parents insight, knowledge, and the language to use when working on behalf of their child. Our center staff is also available to help parents interpret educational testing results, consider next steps, and advocate for their child for optimal learning success in school.
- Teach parents ways to help their child at home and at school
