Feedback form is now closed.
Approximately 3 students in every classroom will have learning difficulties severe enough to be classified as a learning disability. Many more students will struggle but may not present with deficits severe enough to qualify as an LD. Even with the high incidence of LDs, common myths persist about what learning disabilities are and are not. These erroneous myths include things like “dyslexia is simply flipping letters around” or “students with learning disabilities have low full scale IQs.” Failure to understand the scope of learning disabilities impedes students from getting the support they need and impacts teachers who genuinely wish to do the best for all students. This session will present practical information about the explosion of evidence-based findings on learning disabilities.
