The Learning Disability Association of Utah, Jordan Community Education, and the Utah Parent Center have announced a new eight-week training program. The course will train volunteers to give support to parents of children with learning disabilities, particularly helping them to become appropriately involved with the schools in the education process.
The course is open to the public. There is a $10 material donation, but no one will be excluded for inability to pay. The course will discuss learning disabilities, educational testing issues, working with the schools and obtaining funding for programs. Various agencies will volunteer their expertise as part of the training.Classes will be held Tuesdays from 7-9:30 p.m. in West Jordan from March 19 through May 7. To register or find out the specific location, contact the association and Joyce Otterstrom at 355-2881.
