Free Education Seminar

August 15, 2013 – 5:30 to 9:00 pm. 

Help for your struggling students and the homework wars that disrupt your homeschool.  You are invited to this important event sponsored by the Springfield Teaching and Resource Services (STARS). Veteran homeschool parents will share their experiences overcoming educational challenges due to visual and auditory processing delays, problems with ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger’s, and learning styles that are problematic in the classroom environment.


We will also have Dr. Chris Ogilvie discuss the role of nutrition in the struggling learner.  

Dr. Tod Davis will discuss visual processing and the importance of the eyes working together with the brain for learning.

Al Nestor will share his wisdom with us on how to develop well-rounded, healthy adults from his many years of counseling.
