Addison Trail hosts program for Spanish-speaking parents: Dr. Ferney Ramírez presents about ‘10 Secrets to Create a Powerful Family’

On Sept. 13, Dr. Ferney Ramírez (a respected psychologist and coordinator of bilingual parent-education programs) presented in Spanish to about 50 Addison Trail parents/guardians, who are members of the school’s Padres Latinos en Acción group.

Meeting topics include information on accessing college, financial aid, rigorous academic programming, social-emotional concerns and community issues.
