EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN SERVICES

Exceptional Children Services

One of our goals in the Department of Exceptional Children Services is to ensure our parents have the information they need in order to make the best decisions possible for their child. 

As a means of accomplishing that goal, we offer two sets of parent workshops.

1.  Our ECS Parent Workshop series is aimed at providing general information around a host of topics regarding educating students with disabilities. 

2.  Our Dyslexia Workshop series is to educate our parents of students with dyslexia around a variety of topics.  Also check out our Dyslexia link (left) for more information about Dyslexia.
