For its Eleventh Annual Education Symposium, Little Keswick Foundation for Special Education is bringing Rick Lavoie to the neighborhood. Because they’ve seen one or more of his videos, most folks interested in Learning Disabilities are familiar with Mr. Lavoie, but this will be a special opportunity to see him in person. He will speak at the V. Earl Dickinson Building (Piedmont Virginia Community College) Thursday 16 October 2008 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, and his talk will focus on social relations, “It’s So Much Work to Be Your Friend: Helping Children Find Social Success.”
“It’s So much Work to Be Your Friend: Helping Children Find Social Success” is the topic of the 11th Annual Education Symposium sponsored by The Little Keswick Foundation for Special Education.
Featured speaker RICK LAVOIE is one of the country’s leading special education consultants, and his sellout lectures have made him one of the most sought-after and respected experts in the field. He has made numerous national television appearances, is well-known for his award-winning PBS videos, and is author of two bestsellers widely recommended for every parent and educator. Rick’s presentation will address social problems faced by children and will offer effective tools for teaching social skills in the home and in the classroom. While aimed at children with learning difficulties, his practical solutions are helpful to anyone who deals with children and to any parent whose child has social difficulties. The Symposium will take place on Thursday, October 16th from 7 – 9 pm at the V. Earl Dickinson Building at Piedmont Virginia Community College. The event is free and open to the public as part of the Foundation’s mission to increase public awareness of special education. Appreciation goes to Oakland School for helping to sponsor this unique event. For more information, call or email Laura Dickason, 434-293-7981; lcdickason _at_ littlekeswickschool.net.
