    The workshop will be held on Saturday, February 25th from 10:30am to 12:30pm at the Symposia bookstore in Hoboken, NJ. Registration is limited to 12 and the fee is $25 per participant ($40 per couple).

    �Learning at Home-Learning in School� will be led by Andrew Lerner, Ph.D. who is a school psychologist for the New York City Department of Education. Dr. Lerner has also taught Theories of Learning and Cognitive Psychology at New School University in Manhattan. He may be contacted through Symposia.
