Jubilee Academy announces workshop for parents whose children struggle academically

Teaching a child with special needs doesn't have to drive you crazy.
Teaching a child with special needs doesn’t have to drive you crazy.

Do you feel called to homeschool your special needs child? Whether you’re currently teaching your child at home or are considering doing so, or if you want to more effectively support your traditional student, Jubilee Academy’s Teaching Students who Struggle Workshop is designed for you. The workshop is taught by Jubilee Academy Director Heather Peavler Goodale, who is certified in both regular and special education. Heather has taught students with special needs, such as ADHD, learning disabilities, and Autism spectrum disorders, for three years. She also has three children with learning or attention struggles, so she understands what it’s like to teach and parent children who struggle.

During the workshop, you will learn research-based strategies to help your children be successful, and you will receive tips on how to reduce the stress of educating special needs children. The workshop will take place three Tuesdays in February, Feb. 4, 11, and 25, 6:30-8 p.m., at Jubilee Academy, 7505 Kavanaugh Road, Crestwood, KY 40014. Parents should plan to attend all three sessions if possible. Cost is $45 for one or both parents to attend. Financial aid is available for those who need it.

For more information, or to sign up, contact Heather Peavler, 502-439-4400, or jubilee.academy@aol.com. Registration deadline is Jan. 28.
