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 will negatively affect their learning, and therefore represents an opportunity to positively affect student outcomes.
This 12-hour (12 CEU) seminar for physical and occupational therapists may be taken by other professionals in health related fields (see below). 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. Dinner on Friday, and breakfast, lunch and a mid-afternoon snack on Saturday are included in the fee. Instructor: Jason Ashby, PT.
