Supporting Students with a Diagnosed Learning Disability: Signs, Symptoms and Advocacy Strategies

Tuesday, December 14, 2021
2:00 pm3:00 pm

Learning disabilities are due to genetic or neurobiological factors that alter brain functioning to affect one or more cognitive processes related to learning. These processing problems can interfere with learning basic skills such as reading, writing, and math. They can also interfere with higher-level skills such as organization, time planning, abstract reasoning, long or short-term memory, and attention. In this training webinar, participants will learn signs, symptoms, and strategies to advocate for children in care.
