Course Description

View Schedule (2 sessions)

The 2010 U.S. Census determined that 4.6 million Americans have a learning disability. Many experts believe that this number vastly underrepresents the true number, as the number of people with dyslexia alone may be 20 percent of the U.S. population of over 329 million. Of high school students identified with a learning disability, 94 percent request accommodations or modifications while only 17 percent of college students do so. This could negatively affect their learning, and therefore we have an opportunity to help them.

This 12-hour (12 CEU) seminar is for academic educators, clinical instructors, counselors and therapists, and healthcare providers interested in learning more about learning disabilities and how to help clients or students with learning disabilities to thrive. Within the 12 hours, you will learn about dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and nonverbal learning disabilities as well as ADHD, anxiety and depression. We will review how to set up accommodations or modifications and design an education experience for a student. Early-bird deadline to save $24 off the fee: Oct. 30. Instructor: Jason Ashby, PT.
