**Please note: The February workshop (Language-based Learning Differences) has been re-scheduled due to low enrollment. Please check back later for new date and times.
Hi and welcome!
We are partnering with NAMI, STRiVE, and other local service providers to deliver a series of interactive workshops right here in our own backyard! Our goal is to support the educators, providers, and parents here in Mesa County and Western Colorado, by bringing quality trainings to them. This will be a 3-Part Series, with each workshop integrating experts from our own community and beyond.
Registration is now CLOSED for Part 1: “Language-based Learning Differences: What are they? Why do they matter?” This is ideal for educators, parents, and providers who work with students of all ages.
Part 2 focuses on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). For this workshop we will be partnering with STRiVE and the Audyssey Neurodevelopmental Diagnostic Team. All proceeds will go to the Audyssey Team so they may better serve Mesa County and surrounding areas. Early diagnosis is essential because early intervention is key!
Part 3 gives you first hand experience of what it is like to have an array of learning disorders and other neurodevelopmental challenges. We are bringing in a simulation developed by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). This is a unique and inside look at what these challenges REALLY feel like. Maybe it is a “can’t” and not a “won’t.”
Feel free to email us directly at workshopGJ@gmail.com if you have a topic you would like to suggest, you would like to sponsor, facilitate, host, or offer a workshop, or if you have any other questions or comments. We would love to hear from you!
Language-Based Learning Difference Workshop has been changed to a later date. Check back for details.
