NOVEMBER 3, 2003 - The parents, families and educators of students with learning disabilities have an opportunity to find an excellent post-high school environment for their students or loved ones when the Center for the Advancement of Learning (CAL) hosts "Discover Muskingum Day" on Friday, November 7 on the campus.

This day-long event begins at 9:00 a.m. in the Boyd Science Center lobby on the campus. A panel discussion will be held, followed by the presentation by the featured speaker, Patricia S. Lemer, M.Ed., NCC, who is executive director of Developmental Delay Resources (DDR). An educational counselor for more than 30 years, Lemer has lectured nationally and written widely about novel approaches for students with various learning disabilities.

Lunch will be served at noon and there will be a campus tour at 1:30 p.m. The day will conclude at approximately 2:00 p.m.

During "Discover Muskingum Day," participants will learn what students can do now to build the foundation for college, how to choose appropriate academic courses, what successful tactics families can implement, summer work and community service options that can contribute to college success, and how to identify and evaluate different types of post secondary placements.

This seminar will offer a complete overview of CAL programs, which offer students with learning disabilities, attention deficits and Asperger Syndrome the right atmosphere in which to pursue a college degree.
