Needham, June 7th, 2017. Get beyond the Dyslexia and ADHD buzzwords by attending this presentation with Dr. Joanna Christodoulou, Director of the Brain, Education, and Mind Lab at the MGH Institute of Health Professions and Brendan Mahan, Founder of ADHD Essentials. They will discuss children who struggle with reading who also struggle with attention. What do these diagnoses mean about the way our children learn best? How can we create better educational interventions to help our children feel successful in school?
Topics covered will include:
- Unpacking the definition of dyslexia, ADHD, and the characteristics associated with each diagnosis.
- Understanding the brain basis of reading development, dyslexia, executive function, and attention.
- Implementing effective strategies and interventions to help children who struggle with dyslexia and ADHD.
