Parent Education Workshops


We created Parent Education Workshops to provide a deeper understanding of learning disabilities and dyslexia for parents, grandparents, siblings, and other support figures.

Our staff and guest speakers share simulations, explanations, and strategies that answer your questions on learning disabilities — all in a friendly, approachable setting.

You don’t have to be the parent of a student enrolled at Churchill to attend one of our events. For more information on Churchill’s Parent Education Workshops, check out our upcoming events below or email Mary Brotherton at mbrotherton@churchillstl.org.

Dyslexia DecodED Series- Decoding the Future of Dyslexia

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.
