On Friday, October 17, 2008, Karen E. Dakin, M.Ed., Director of Hathaway' Brown's Center for Academic Potential, will offer her advice and insight to parents and educators.

Her presentation, which will take place at 9 a.m. at Notre Dame College in South Euclid, is part of an education program offered for the annual NEOEA Day sponsored by the Northeast Ohio Education Association.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear several speakers and to participate in question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions around the theme "Steps to Self-Advocacy: Getting on the College Track."

Mrs. Dakin will specifically address preparing students with learning disabilities to become self advocates and helping them to successfully apply for and receive accommodations on high-stakes testing such as College Board and ACT tests.

In addition to serving as Director of HB's Center for Academic Potential, Mrs. Dakin has been a classroom teacher, reading specialist, resource room teacher and codirector of the Learning Assessment Clinic at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. She also directed her own educational therapy clinic for children, adolescents and adults with dyslexia. A certified reading specialist, she holds a bachelor's degree from Upsala College and a master's degree from Rutger's University. She is a Vice President of the International Dyslexia Association Board of Directors and is the author of "Basic Facts about Dyslexia & Other Reading Problems."

"Steps to Self-Advocacy: Getting on the College Track" is slated for 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. on October 17 on the South Euclid campus of Notre Dame College. The event is open to parents, teachers, coaches and psychologists. The $50 per person registration fee includes continental breakfast, luncheon and all handouts.
