Children Having Learning Differences (C.H.I.L.D.) is a parent organization for the Verona school district. C.H.I.L.D. provides support to Verona children facing learning challenges, including: Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia, Speech and Language Disorders, Sensory Integration Disorder, Hearing or Visually Impaired, Down Syndrome, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
C.H.I.L.D. seeks to bridge the gap between General and Special Education through collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators and students and by providing education, information and technology addressing learning differences.
C.H.I.L.D. also sponsors a parent sharing group called Circle of Friends. This is a group for new and experienced parents to share information, concerns, and questions about their child's learning issue. The group meets five times a year (September, November, January, March and May). Please email us to receive notification of the date, time and location of our meetings.
If you would like to be on our email list, have a question or want to volunteer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All C.H.I.L.D. meetings are open to the public and are held at the VCC starting at 7 p.m.
Scheduled Fall 2013-14 dates to be announced.
