HARAHAN — What exactly is the “Summer Slide”? Well, it basically means a loss of academic skills and knowledge over the summer break. This loss in learning varies across grade level and subject matter, but it can be hard for students to come back from when school resumes in the fall, especially for students with learning differences.

This free webinar explains five things parents and kids can do each day to help prevent the summer slide. This webinar will be Monday, May 22 from 12 to 1 p.m. This training opportunity is FREE, but registration is required.

For more information or to register, call Families Helping Families of Greater New Orleans at (504) 888-9111 or visit their website at and click on the calendar under the TRAINING tab. The registration link is found on the calendar for May 22.
