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.

With stress and burnout spiking, many of us believe that our lives would be better if only we were less anxious. But DR. TRACY DENNIS-TIWARY says our anxiety is actually good for us, even though it feels bad. Anxiety helps us focus, create and plan for the uncertain future. As a clinical psychologist and author of 'Future Tense', Tracy argues that we've been looking at the anxiety crisis all wrong. In highly practical talks, she provides a radical new framework for managing anxiety - our brains' response to uncertainty - and using it to our advantage. "When we stop rejecting anxiety," she says, "we will better able to channel it, manage it and use it to prioritize what matters to us in life."
