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
