Full Day Session: Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, and Dysgraphia: An Integrated Approach

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

The participants will be watching a video training of the following:

 In this ground-breaking seminar, professionals from many different perspectives come together to learn how their interventions integrate to remediate some of the more complicated dysfunctions seen in education today. The Pyramid of Potential approach starts the remediation with building blocks of mind and body health from the nutrition and psychology disciplines. This is followed by neurodevelopment (primitive reflex integration) and sensory-motor development from occupational therapy, physical therapy and vision therapy disciplines. Finally, cognitive skills training, such as memory, attention, and processing speed, come from education. This program combines lecture and notes with discussion and hands-on exercises to facilitate every learning style.

Objectives: Identify the common causes of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia and when brain development occurs for necessary cognitive skills. Explain how many professions, such as education, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nutrition, psychology and others can use an integrated approach to improve Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia. List the 4 underlying areas of brain development needed in order to have academic success. List at least 10 different ways to improve test scores of learning disabled students. List at least 3 ways to improve or accommodate for visual or auditory processing problems that may lead to Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dysgraphia. Create a systematic plan of interventions aimed at improving the functioning of a student with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dysgraphia.  Listed as 6 hours and 12 minute training.

(Open to all participants).
