Learning Disabilities: Critical Concepts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session provides insight into the neurodevelopmental basis of learning disabilities. The different sub-types of reading, writing and mathematics disabilities will be reviewed along with implications for remediation strategies. Literacy skills in typically developing students will be contrasted with skills development in students showing signs of learning disabilities/disorders. The impact of co-existing conditions like executive skills deficits, ADHD and anxiety will also be discussed. Teachers will gain a more complete understanding of LDs and their remediation, informed by current and emerging research.
