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.

Join us for Dyslexia DecodED, a three-part series on supporting students with dyslexia in school and life.
Dyslexia is the most common learning difference affecting students in educational environments, yet many educators feel unsure and unprepared to meet the needs of these students. Our goal as part of this three-part series is to put the right information, tools and resources required to support students with dyslexia into action in every classroom.
This webinar series is intended as a starting point, to help educators decode and demystify dyslexia. Learning about dyslexia provides an opportunity for educators and community members to positively shift the entire curve and support the 17-20% who identify as dyslexic. Dyslexia is not only served by educators in the classroom setting. The community of supports, advocate, parent, organization play a critical role in ensuring that students with dyslexia are empowered to reach their full potential.
