Join us for a day-long look at ADHD, Dyslexia, and Executive Function problems.
Dyslexia, ADHD, and anxiety frequently coexist. Often students do not respond to seemingly appropriate interventions because the impairment is the result of multiple factors and the intervention plan only addresses some of them. Dr. Tridas and Sr. Mary Cottrill will discuss the main contributing factors to these students’ problems and how they interact with each other to impair learning. In the morning, Dr. Tridas will review the symptoms of ADHD and anxiety and their impact on executive function and reading. In the afternoon, Sr. Mary Gilcrist will focus on how executive function deficits impact learning and give practical, strategic supports to assist students, teachers, and parents.
