"Reducing New School Year Anxiety - 

for You and Your Child "

Presented by Ken Goodman, LCSW

The start of a new school year brings the excitement of getting new backpacks and clothes, meeting new friends and teachers. But for many students with dyslexia, school resuming also brings up feelings of anxiety and worry about their reading challenges.

Parents of children with dyslexia may also be feeling anxious about facing the challenges of a new school year. Lets get together and talk about it!  Our guest speaker, Ken Goodman, will share strategies that can help parents lessen their own anxiety about the new school year as well as provide guidance for parents to assist their child to cope with school related challenges.. 

Participation is free, but your RSVP is required :)
