Parents in central Ohio are fortunate because Marburn Academy in Columbus has expanded their popular Free Community Parent Seminar Series for 2009-2010.

For over eight years, Marburn Academy has been offering parents of children with learning differences access to state-of-the-art identification and remediation information that isn’t available anywhere else in Central Ohio.

Parents who have attended these seminars have learned about the many unique and innovative programs Marburn has introduced to our area. 

They have also gained valuable insight into appropriate instructional approaches that work best for teaching reading, writing, spelling, math, and organizational skills to bright children with learning differences such as dyslexia and ADHD.
