Faith Howland
At these schools, students with learning differences – ADHD, executive function deficits or language-based learning disabilities, for example – have effective, structured supports built right into their regular academic programs, not offered only as add-ons or pull-outs.

Using representative case studies, our panelists will describe how their schools would meet the needs of bright students who benefit from support. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

Carol Kinlan
The discussion will be moderated by NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus along with Educational Consultants Carol Kinlan and Faith Howland of Howland, Spence & McMillan.

We hope this program will interest and assist parents of  7th and 8th graders, their friends and families, along with heads of school, learning specialists and their colleagues.

Admission is $20 per person, payable by credit card in advance by phone or, space permitting, by exact change at the door. Light refreshments will be served. There is ample, free garage parking. For additional information, please call 617-658-9800, or email nesca@nesca-newton.com.
