[March 11, 2009]  Understanding how to help children learn is a task that all parents or guardians may face. For parents or guardians of children with special education needs, the task presents additional hurdles to cross. Parents, guardians and anyone interested in learning how to assist a child with learning disabilities can find help with the next Communiversity course offered at Lincoln College.

Understanding Special Education and How to Advocate for a Child with a Learning Disability will be held on Tuesdays, April 7, 14 and 21, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Alumni Room of the Meyer-Evans Student Center on the college campus.

Dr. Stephanie Gaddy, director of disability services at Lincoln College, will teach the course. Gaddy says she plans to teach parents effective strategies for teaching students with learning disabilities.

"I would like to provide information to parents and guardians about how they can effectively communicate with teachers as well as assist their child to learn to compensate for the way he/she learns," said Gaddy. "I would like to share my experiences as well as my education in the field of special education so more parents and guardians can truly become advocates for their child."

Registration for the course starts March 17 and ends April 2. The cost of the course is $25. Scholarships are available. To register for the course or for more information on the program, call Jean Ann Miller at 217-732-3155, ext. 251, or e-mail
