Miriam provides expert training to professionals and parents. The Miriam Empowers Through Education series brings local and national experts to St. Louis so that people who touch the lives of children with learning challenges can better understand their needs. Seminars are held four evenings during each school year from 6:00 to 7:30pm and are located at Miriam School, 501 Bacon Avenue in Webster Groves, Missouri 63119. One daytime session is held annually on the Friday before President’s Day and is geared toward educators.
The cost for each evening session is $30 in advance and $40 at the door. Needs based scholarships are available for families who earn $80,000 or less in income. The cost for the half-day daytime session is $79 and includes a continental breakfast. That seminar runs from 8:00am to noon.
Participants will receive a certificate of attendance for all seminars attended.
