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.

FOR: ALL AREA EDUCATORS
WHEN: Wednesday, October 18, 2023
TIME: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (lunch provided)

TOPIC: Science of Learning in the Classroom: Translating Research for Practice
Believe it or not, all human beings learn in exactly the same way- and 40+ years of brain and behavioral research has helped us greatly elucidate this process. Unfortunately, very little of this information has made it to teachers in a manner that can inform and improve their performance. During this day, we aim to bring teachers deeper understanding of the Science of Learning and help consider ways to apply this information to improve pedagogy and study practices in schools. Here is where learning and teaching collide!
