For parents, teens, educators, and professionals.
Plan now to attend the annual Midwest Struggling Learners Conference co-sponsored by JoyQuest and HSLDA! The conference is on Saturday, August 5, 2017. Registration is open until Sunday, July 30, 2017. Walk-ins are always welcome, but lunch will be limited to a first-come-first-served basis and not included in the price.
What do a coffee shop, a cookie business, a talk show, and a sock empire have in common? All are successful family businesses started by dedicated parents and their children with learning disabilities. Starting a business teaches students life skills such as time management, money management, and executive skills, as well as social skills, through interaction and service that produce confidence and independence. Starting a business is an avenue worth considering, and expert Carol Topp will show you just how do-able it is!
Speaker Carol Carpenter will be addressing questions such as: Why do some learners thrive while others struggle? How is intelligence created? What is mediated learning, and what difference does it make? You will not want to miss these helpful and informative workshops.
Check out the Study Skills Classes on Friday, August 4. Do your kiddos have trouble taking notes in class? Do they find it a nightmare to prepare for tests and keep up with their homework load? Are they struggling with turning in assignments completed and on time? The Back to School Study Skills Class is a valuable tool to help prepare students to do their very best this school year!
Don’t miss out on the fellowship! Take this opportunity to visit with other like-minded parents dedicated to helping their children reach their God-given potential.

About the Midwest Struggling Learners Conference
JoyQuest was originally formed by Ron and Vicky Broadfield to help meet the needs of their own daughter. Since then it has grown into a ministry consisting of dedicated Christian volunteers. JoyQuest desires to serve and come alongside parents of struggling learners and special needs children to offer faith-based support as they nurture and instruct their children with a focus on educational challenges.
JoyQuest endeavors to have a conference on a regular basis for parents, educators, and professionals who work with children who struggle with learning. Past speakers have included Steve Demme, Carol Barnier, Andrew Pudewa, Dianne Craft, and Sharon Hensley, and the HSLDA Special Needs Consultant, Faith Berens.
