Speaking of Kids is a popular series of seminars being offered by the Farmington and Lakeville School Districts. The seminars will empower parents, educators, and caregivers by providing information and ideas to enhance their relationships with children and to help them succeed.

Farmington School District #192 and Lakeville School District #194 Community Education and Early Childhood Family Education programs have partnered together to provide these important and beneficial seminars to area residents.

 The first seminar entitled, “Unlock the Einstein Inside: Applying Brain Research to Wake Up the Smart in Your Child”, led by Richard Frieder will provide new information about brain research and how it affects children’s cognitive skills, working and long term memory, attention skills, and their impact on learning. This seminar is fun and interactive and will provide practical strategies to use at home or in the classroom.

Rich Frieder is the owner of LearningRx. Rich has worked with individuals with ADHD, autism, dyslexia and general learning struggles. Rich has spoken to numerous parent and professional groups including school districts, education conferences, homeschool groups, occupational therapy groups, ABA therapy groups and support groups.
