    The Effects of the Pandemic on Students with Learning Differences

    Facilitated by Phil Howell and Denise Jett

    The Covid-19 Global Pandemic has affected students, educators, and families alike. Transitioning to remote teaching and learning has had some very devastating results for students with learning differences. Educators and psychologists report that the pandemic has not only significantly affected children’s executive functioning and decision-making but has directly impacted many students' academic progress. This presentation explores the impact of the pandemic on a student's social awareness, self-regulation, and motivation, while also examining the influence on student learning.

    Supporting Students with Learning Differences

    Facilitated by Erin Whicker and Lisa Stepp

    This session will help attendees identify the most common learning differences facing students, including ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and executive function difficulties. During this session, educators will receive proven strategies to support students to be independent, successful, and secure in school. Presenters will discuss practical ways to advocate for students and partner with classroom teachers while also structuring a child’s home environment to support their learning needs. Interactive discussions will include scheduling, establishing homework stations and routines, bedtime, and before-school routines, to name a few.
