Community Education Series

The Community Education Series engages and educates our community about learning differences and attention challenges. This free and public series provides practical resources and information that are both grounded in research and accessible to parents, educators, and professionals. All events take place at Hill Learning Center from 6:30-8:00pm unless otherwise noted.

These programs are open to the community and free of charge thanks to the generous support of John Morris and Waynell Morris in honor of their son Scott Morris ’01.
