    We meet monthly and are open to anyone in the Lexington Public Schools (LPS) who has a child with a language based learning disability, such as dyslexia, or thinks that they may have one and needs to talk with and learn from other parents.  Whether or not your child is on an IEP, in the process of establishing one, or you’re just curious and need more information, please come to share your experiences, ask questions, and impart your knowledge in a supportive environment.

    Join us for a workshop designed to help parents understand the nature of stress and anxiety in childhood.  We will review the underlying causes of anxiety and how to differentiate between developmentally typical worries and clinically significant anxiety.  The workshop will address how parents can support the development of adaptive coping strategies and how to strengthen children’s resilience and optimism, with a focus on tips and tools to implement at home.
