The Neuropsychology of Learning Differences for All Learners including Gifted and Special Needs.

  • ADHD/Executive Functioning

  • Learning Disabilities, including Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia

  • Anxiety and its impact on learning

    Children with learning differences often present with a variety of learning characteristics, and sometimes do not fit neatly into specific "diagnoses." In this presentation, we will talk about the different types of learning characteristics or challenges that are common among broader diagnoses (listed above). We will learn about different types of dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, as well as the different types of executive functions that contribute to learning. We will also highlight the role of anxiety in undermining optimal learning, and how anxiety can co-occur and exacerbate other learning challenges.
