The “Parents as Leaders: Supporting Your Child with a Learning Differences” workshop will provide parents and caregivers of children with learning challenges with specific skills and ideas for supporting the success of their child at home and in school.

Participants will learn:

  • Techniques for communicating with children who learn differently by using visuals, non-verbal cues, and step-by-step instructions.
  • Strategies for preventing and reducing difficult behaviors, anticipating problems, and reducing stress.
  •  Skills and ideas for advocating effectively for their child’s needs in their school and community

With over 90 years of experience in direct service and training programs, Ramapo for Children has developed a unique ability to create inclusive environments that promote positive behavioral change, foster skill development, and help support learning and personal growth. 

At the heart of the Ramapo Approach is our ability to equip educators and other caregivers with the skills they need to build trusting relationships, serve as effective role models, handle challenging behaviors constructively, and improve continuously through reflective practice.
