Social competence is a salient factor in predicting learning and mental health outcomes particularly for children with neuro-developmental disorders, executive dysfunction, learning disabilities, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. By understanding how brains process social information differently we can learn how to intervene effectively at younger ages. Diagnostic challenges and strategies for intervention and remediation will be discussed from the perspective of researchers, evaluators, educators, speech and language pathologists and mental health clinicians. The speakers will be followed by a panel discussion with a panel comprised of: local mental health practitioners, school specialists, and child advocates. The panelists will provide concrete tools and local resources for parents and practitioners.
The conference is intended for school administrators, educators, counselors, psychologists, speech, language therapists, mental health professionals, parents, child advocates, and caregivers working with children.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED BY MARCH 24th AND SEATING IS LIMITED.
