Workshops

The Prentice School is proud to offer FREE educational workshops designed for parents, professionals and community members. The purpose of these workshops is to provide parents of a child with learning differences or adults who work with children with learning differences with a forum to discuss issues critical to the students’ academic success, social growth and emotional development.

We believe in providing parents, guardians and caregivers the support they deserve. In addition to our workshops, we are offering a 4-week Support Group for those in need of a common place to come together for mutual understanding and shared strategies.

Please join us for an opportunity to discover different ideas, learn from others, experience new things, and be inspired.
