A learning disability can have a significant impact on a student’s success in the classroom, yet the red flags are often missed. Learning disabilities such as dyslexia often go undiagnosed until at least the third grade, perhaps longer. Educators, parents, and others are invited to learn more about the symptoms of learning disabilities, how they are diagnosed, and the resources for students with such learning challenges.

The Center for Learning Differences Education at Trident Academy is pleased to host Chantal Milcarek, Founder of Sprouting Minds and Licensed Psycho-Educational Specialist, at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8.

Some questions that Chantal will answer during her presentation:

  • What is a learning disability and how is it diagnosed?
  • What is ADHD and how is it diagnosed?
  • What is a psycho-educational evaluation and types of tests are used as part of the evaluation?
  • What can parents expect prior to their child’s assessment? How should they prepare their child for the assessment?
  • How are scores reported and what do they mean?
  • Will a child be eligible for Special Education or additional support at school if they receive an independent psycho-educational evaluation?
  • What are the next steps following a psycho-educational evaluation?
  • Does a child need to be re-evaluated after receiving an initial psycho-educational evaluation?

All are invited to attend this event at Trident Academy, located at 1455 Wakendaw Road in Mt. Pleasant. RSVPs are requested but not required. To reserve your spot, call 884.3494 or email admissions@tridentacademy.com.
