Conferences, Lectures and Workshops: We bring locally and nationally renowned experts to speak to parents and educators throughout the school year.

SF Giants Awareness Event: We hold an annual LD Awareness Night, in collaboration with other organizations, at a San Francisco Giants ballgame. SAFE Voices: We run a group for LD teens, with volunteer assistance from local educational and psychological professionals.

School Liaisons and Support Groups: We train parent volunteers in local schools who create a bridge between PEN and the administration and provide a PEN presence in the school for other parents. We also help parents of LD kids set up parent support and advocacy groups at their schools. We provide opportunities for parents to network with other parents to discuss common issues.
