Learning disabilities and chronic illness are often hidden in the classroom—but they are there, impacting school performance, including reduced attention and concentration, poor motivation, resistance to school assignments and absence issues. The challenges that these conditions pose to our children affect them on a daily basis, both in and out of school.

Learning Essentials has teamed up with Power UP by Learning Essentials to offer a simulation workshop that helps educators and medical professionals to actually feel what it is like to have dyslexia, auditory & visual processing problems, attention challenges, traumatic brain injury and more.

Through a series of interactive activities, participants gain insights into what these children experience every day – and learn strategies to help them thrive.

Walk a Mile in the shoes of students with learning or chronic medical needs. Let Learning Essentials and Power UP help you become a better guide for these students as they find their footing and reach their academic peak!

Join Learning Essentials and Power UP by Learning Essentials for a fun, informative and interactive morning.

 

Doors open at 9:00 am for coffee and conversation

Event starts promptly at 9:30 am

SPEAKER BIO:

As Executive Director of Learning Essentials, Wendy Taylor’s mission is to meet the individual needs of each student she serves. She maintains that every student is capable of success both in and out of the classroom, but finds that many students lack the strategies to achieve success. That is why she founded Learning Essentials to guide students and instill study habits that assist learners of all abilities to attain, if not exceed, their goals.

Wendy has extensive experience working with students of all ages and abilities, with a focus on learning differences and disabilities. Prior to founding Learning Essentials, she served as a faculty member at Saint Petersburg College, a supervisor of pre-service teachers and a Montgomery County Public School teacher. A certified educator and qualified educational diagnostician, Wendy holds a B.S. in Social Science and Secondary Education from Frostburg State University and a M.Ed. in Special Education from George Mason University.
