How to Find Schooling Options in Uncertain Times

During these uncertain times, parents are struggling to know how to meet the educational needs of their children. Summer break is here in the US, and we can't even plan for the coming academic term, as COVID 19 continues to wreak havoc across the globe.
Schooling during COVID 19

Not Knowing What the Future Holds, Many Parents are Riddled with Questions:

  • Will the schools be open in the fall?
  • Will children be required to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines?
  • Should I homeschool my kids?
  • How can I earn an income and attend to my child's needs?
  • What is the long-term impact of keeping my child out of school?
  • What are the social-emotional consequences of social distancing for my child?
  • How can I keep my family safe if my kids are at school?

Being Informed About You Educational Choices:

The best way to manage anxiety about the coming academic year is to be fully informed. I'm happy to announce that there is a wonderful opportunity: a comprehensive online summit. I am one of the many speakers, and it's happening on July 15th, 16th, and 17th. It’s complementary to attend those days. If you miss these dates, no worries. You can access the many interviews and resources for a nominal fee. 

My topic of discussion is Multisensory Learning: Making Instruction Fun, Empowering and Memorable. I hope you will sign up!

The mission of the event is to present parents with options, resources, and ideas, so they can make the best decisions for their children and family. To learn more, CLICK HERE or on the image below:

Why Copying from a Board is Ineffective for Dyslexics

Having to take notes by copying from a board or projection while a teacher is lecturing is challenging for any learner, because it requires students to multitask and constantly shift modes of learning. The process demands students to read, listen and write while making sense of the material. However, for students with dyslexia this teaching method can be disastrous.
