This workshop focuses on helping parents and professionals understand the links between cognition, science, and 504 accommodations. The session begins with an overview of the neuroscience of learning disorders. Then, participants, in small groups, discuss the cognitive underpinnings of accommodations, review case studies of students with 504 accommodation plans, and generate appropriate ways of implementing accommodations in the classroom. Finally, participants learn the rationale and research behind the most common accommodations used by schools today.
RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
