Outreach & Workshops

Churchill Center & School’s Sandra K. Gilligan School Partnerships & Outreach Program is essential in strengthening our mission of fostering greater understanding and support for all people with learning disabilities by training other educators, supporting families, and enlightening the community.

Since the inception of our Community Outreach Program in 1990, more than 37,500 educators, parents, students, and other supporters have been given the opportunity to experience and broaden their understanding of learning disabilities.

We offer Teacher Workshops, Parent Workshops, Student Workshops, Community Service Events, and a Speaker Series. Each one of these programs offers our community a variety of services to recognize learning disabilities and to then equip the participants with strategies and knowledge to offer further assistance.

Churchill Center & School SIBLING Workshop

Sibling relationships can be complex and challenging. When a child is struggling with a learning disability, those relationships can become even more complicated.

This workshop will focus on activities that simulate what it is like to have a learning disability/dyslexia. Siblings will have the opportunity to actually experience some of the frustrations felt by children with LD via these simulated activities. We hope it will help siblings understand the daily social and academic struggles experienced by their brother or sister with a learning disorder. Some time for discussion and Q&A will be provided.
