CANCELLED – The Summit School Community Talk: A Parent Primer on Learning Differences – When Bright Children Struggle in School

This talk had to be cancelled due to a problem beyond our control at the Eastport Annapolis Neck Library.  The talk will be held next at the Severna Park Community Library on May 9th at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.


Parents often hear terms related to their child’s progress in school but they might not truly understand what these terms mean. Understanding a child’s learning profile is important to their success. Learn more about topics such as dyslexia, executive function, working memory, attention-deficit disorder, dysgraphia, and other related terms and diagnoses.

Applicable Grades: K-12. Appropriate for: parents, educators and administrators.
