F13 - LD: The Emotional Consequences of Delayed Intervention

Oct 26, 2018 9:45am ‐ Oct 26, 2018 11:15am

Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00


Research indicates that different LD profiles vary significantly in the severity of risk for developing emotional problems. Unless the term learning disability is understood and intervention is provided in a timely manner, prevention will be prevented, and the special education community will continue to be relegated to cleaning up the mess. Timely intervention holds promise for many who would otherwise fall through the cracks. The ultimate benefit to the child and society is to prevent need, not postpone help!

Learning Objectives:

  • RESEARCH: Understand how genes, brains and contemporary culture contribute to learning disorders and develop effective strategies to support each child’s success both in school and in life.
  • SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL: Examine social/emotional issues and implications for practice for individuals with dyslexia and related language learning disabilities.
