During the Summit, Palo Alto CAC will offer a dyslexia/learning differences simulation with partners from PTAC and REEL: 1 in 5 people experience Learning Differences like dyslexia. Hands-on activities will let participants experience some of the challenges and frustrations faced by students with language-based learning disabilities. Rotate among guided stations that simulate tasks encountered in the classroom. Gain empathy and a better understanding of the needs and supports for those with learning differences. Space limited.

The Summit is a family-centered conference dedicated to empowering and engaging families around important topics that affect their child’s academic achievement, health, and wellbeing. This year the summit will focus on four key themes: Health and wellbeing, supporting diverse learners, academic success, and engaging with PAUSD.
