Seminar WorkShop: Creating A Future For Children With Learning Difficulties

“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.”- Dr. Maria Montessori

There is so much that children can contribute to the world. Every child is born for a unique purpose that no one could ever fulfill exactly as he/she was meant to realize.

“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.”- Pablo Casals

Even children with unique learning needs can have a future full of hope and promise. We must believe that they may see and live it for themselves. It is in this light that we are inviting you to “Creating a Future for Children with Learning Difficulties” seminar workshop from May 2 to 6, 2011.

This will be held at Talamban Leisure Center (TLC) from 8am to 12nn. The following topics will be covered:

May 2: Children with Learning Difficulties, An Overview
May 3: Paying Attention: Defining Attention Difficulties and Exploring Attention
Management Strategies
May 4: Creating Individualized Educational Plans for Children with Learning Difficulties
May 5: Simple Strategies to Take the Difficulty out of Learning
May 6: Teaching Vocabulary, Comprehension, and Writing

DONNA CARMINA “Mimai” GARCIA- CASTELO, Program Director of The Resource Room (TRR), will be the resource person. Mimai has the passion for helping children with learning difficulties (LD). She does diagnostic reading and math assessment, creating individualized remedial programs, supervising programs, and teacher training in TRR. She is educated at UP College of Education in Diliman, Quezon City.

Mimai has 8 years of LD specialization which she attained at Wordlab School, New Manila and more than a decade of experience with helping schools in Cebu City modify curriculum, create, and monitor IEPs. She is also a Certified Teacher for:

Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program

Registration fee is P3,500 which includes a morning snack and lunch. You will also be provided with handouts. Should there be 3 participants in a group, the discounted fee is P3,000 each. For parents of Children’s Paradise Montessori School students, the fee is down to P2,500 each.

Teachers, therapists, and parents would greatly benefit from this seminar workshop. Mimai is not only technically knowledgeable but also inspiring in delivering her message straight from the heart.

She will give us a clearer understanding of learning difficulties and how it manifests in children. Furthermore, we will be moved to act by providing appropriate cognitive/academic interventions to aid children overcome these difficulties.

Thus, certain strategies will be presented to enable children with unique learning needs develop fundamental learning, literacy, and math skills.

It is indeed imperative for us, adults, to aid every child to become a master of himself. This is possible only if he/she is empowered to be independent and eventually confident in taking every opportunity that leads him/her to reach his/her fullest potential. To empower them is to equip and enable them according to their needs.

“When you put faith, hope, and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.” – Zig Ziglar

We enjoin you to this run towards raising happy children no matter how unique their needs are. Children’s Paradise Montessori School was founded five years ago with the mission of providing education for life to children.

We have created a learning environment based on Montessori principles that guide and nurture the development of each child’s potential to become an informed, active, compassionate, and lifelong learner, who will make a positive contribution to the global community.
