    2. knowledge of the cognitive and linguistic factors that contribute to dyslexia

    3. awareness of assessment techniques for diagnosing dyslexia

    Shelley Haven ATP, RET
    Assistive Technology Consultant

    The right technology can level the academic playing field for struggling students by helping them leverage their learning strengths and reduce the impact of weaknesses. It can also increase independence and foster an “I can do it!” attitude.

    • reduce reading time and improve comprehension (text-to-speech software, audiobooks)
    • take the dread out of writing (graphic organizers, speech recognition, contextual spellcheckers)
    • listen more and write less while taking notes (smartpens, notetaking apps)
    • study more effectively (digital annotation, interactive study guides)
    • understand math concepts and type legible equations (virtual manipulatives, math notation software)
    • get organized and stay focused (digital notebooks, distraction reducers)
    • manage time and tasks (timers, task management apps)

    NEW Monthly PEN Drop-In Group for Parents!


    As parents of kids with learning and attention differences who often need a lot of support we sometimes are better at taking care of others than we are at tending to our own self-care. PEN in collaboration with family therapist Elisabeth Corsale of Pathways Institute is piloting a space for parents of students with learning and attention differences to meet once a month to  support each other on the journey of insuring that our kids get what they need to find academic and life success. 

    Each month's meeting will have a specific theme for exploration but we invite you to also bring what you are experiencing in your own lives so that you can feel nourished and connected to other parents going through similar experiences.

    This parent Drop-In Group is intended to be an affinity space for PARENTS with students with learning and attention differences. As such we ask that our community members who are professionals in the field of learning differences honor this intention and refrain from attending these meetings unless they plan to do so in their capacity as parents of students with learning and attention differences.

    This group is not a space to advertise services.



    Details:

    Meetings are the last Friday of each month and are scheduled from 11:30am-1pm. All meetings will be held at 110 Gough Street, Suite 401, San Francisco, CA 94102. Because space is limited, pre-registration is requested. Registration closes at 5pm the evening before the meeting. Attendees must sign up for each of the four meeting individually even if they plan to attend all four in the series.

    *If regsitration is full, please contact PEN Deputy Executve Director Prasant Nukalapati to add your name to the waitlist.

    PARTICIPATE IN THE SEMINAL EVENT
    FOR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING AND ATTENTION DIFFERENCES, THEIR FAMILIES AND THE EDUCATORS THAT SUPPORT THEM

    YOUR TARGET MARKET IS HERE  -  YOU SHOULD BE TOO!!!

    Meet Your Target Market
    Parents, students and educators gather annually at EdRev to enhance their knowledge and skills, to connect with their community and to learn about current research, resources, learning strategies and technology innovations.  Attendees actively seek information from leading vendors, want to experience hands-on demonstrations and be exposed to new products and services which will improve the quality of their lives and experiences, at home and in the classroom.

    What makes EdRev Unique?
    EdRev, conceived of and first brought to life by Parents Education Network (PEN) in 2009, provides a unique day of interaction, understanding and information for students, parents and educators, exploring ways to create new educational environments that fit the individual, instead of making the individual fit the environment.

    EdRev features:

    • The latest technology that supports learning
    • A wide range of informative, relevant workshops
    • Over 100+ vendors showcasing innovative products, solutions and services
    • A juried student art contest
    • Student celebration with multiple activities held on the baseball field

    EdRev 2013 drew over 2,000+ attendees from the Bay Area and beyond.

    Meet Parents Education Network
    PEN is a grassroots, non-profit organization founded in 2003 by a group of parents whose children have learning and attention differences, and who individually struggled to find the information, services, and expertise needed to help their children succeed academically. They did not want other parents to experience the isolation and frustration they encountered. The founders came to believe strongly that parents and educators must work collaboratively to help children with learning and attention differences understand their individual strengths and challenges. PEN hopes to ignite an education revolution across the country that will acknowledge, appreciate and effectively teach all students, including those with learning and attention differences.
