Workshop: Understanding Learning Disabilities

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) and The Bridge Center will be holding a presentation for the 2015-2016 school year on Tuesday, January 12th at 6 pm titled, How Difficult Can This Be? F.A.T City Workshop: Understanding Learning Disabilities. Through striking simulations emulating daily experiences of children with learning disabilities, Richard Lavoie’s video lets viewers experience their frustration, anxiety, and tension. After watching the video, Deb Westell, Principal of Merrill Elementary School, will reflect with the audience on how to change our approach with children who have these challenges. 

The presentation will be held at The Bridge Center, 470 Pine St, Bridgewater, MA. Please register online in advance for free childcare at: http://www.thebrigectr.org. The BR-SEPAC is made up of parents that represent about 850 children with special needs within the Bridgewater-Raynham School district. The BR-SEPAC works collaboratively with the Bridgewater-Raynham Public Schools and Bridgewater-Raynham School Committee to provide support and information for parents, school personnel, and the community about disabilities and the special education process. 

The Bridgewater-Raynham SEPAC accomplishes this through regular meetings, workshops, presentations, and special events. The meeting is free and open to all. For more information visit our website: brsepac.org or email kwaskiel@hotmail.com.
