SSD Offers Wealth of Resources for All

Special School District (SSD) is a partner to provide special education services within the Hazelwood School District.  While many people know this, many more do not know the opportunities SSD offers to ALL of our parents.  Two notable resources offered are a lending library (located at the SSD central office in Town and Country) and the many parent workshops.  A few years ago I attended one of the workshops on "Brain Gym" at SSD and sat with parents as they learned special exercises to help their children (especially useful with for children with ADHD).  This and other free workshops are offered again this Fall and the updated listings are in the newsletter just published, "SSD Parent Connection".  For ongoing listings of parent workshops offered and to register, visit or call 314-989-7807.
