Summer 2019 Workshop Series

Children's academic success relies in large part on the preparedness of their teachers. In particular, children with learning differences require knowledgeable teachers whose instructional strategies are driven by the latest educational practices and most current understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of the learning process. In that spirit, we have developed a summer workshop series designed to provide teachers, administrators, and parents with the opportunity to expand their understanding of dyslexia, Structured Literacy, educational policy, and educational technology. Through working as a community, we can impact the nearly 1 in 5 students with learning and attention issues, including the 1 in 10 with dyslexia, in our schools. 

Led by Southport School teachers and collaborators, this workshop series will share strategies for working with students with learning differences at home and in the classroom. Please follow the links on the left for further information on each of the workshop offerings.

All sessions will be presented in The Southport School Arts and Music Building and space is limited so registration is required. 

Educators employed at a Connecticut Title I or Turnaround School, or at Catholic Academies can attend any session(s) for free with proof of employment. If interested in signing up for sessions, please fill out this form and we will be in contact.


All workshops can be applied toward AOGPE coursework requirements at the Classroom Educator, Associate, or Certified Level.
