Barbara Langeloh, M/A., ET/P
Visits Frostig on September 17, at 7 p.m.

 

Barb Langeloh will present a simulation activity designed to help parents experience life the way a learning disabled student does. Because this simulation is hands on, attendance will be limited to the first 50 people to sign up. You are encouraged to contact us quickly, because simulations such as this one are very powerful experiences, and very popular.

 

Barb Langeloh has focused on students with learning disabilities for over 30 years, both as a Special Day teacher and a tutor. She has worked at The Peninsula School in Menlo Park, California for 19 years as a Staff Learning Specialist.
