ISLA Padres Research: Learning Differences


ISLA PADRES RESEARCH: LEARNING DIFFERENCES is a community-based participatory research project that trains 5 parents to participate in the research and creation of learning differences facts and advocacy programs for parents of children with learning differences in the Latino community. With this project we hope to train and empower our researchers, provide clear and useful information and improve services for students with learning differences within the educational system.


  • 2 parent cohorts per year
  • 6 limited spots per year
  • Parents are from Durham, Orange, Wake, Chatham and Alamance County.

Note: Participant parents do not have to have a child in ISLA Los Sabados they just need to have a child in school and selection poses on whether there is good variation in age and number.
