This is a follow on workshop from the Zoom workshop earlier in the year.
Learning differences cover dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, ADHD, autism, oppositional defiance, demand avoidance. Auditory processing and visual processing disorders are also addressed as part of other conditions. This workshop will look at these through a cognitive (brain function) lens and begin to address how to cater to these differences in the classroom (such as accommodations, expectations, motivation).
Part of this will be cognitive load theory, motivation theory, and learning theory.
You will be provided with a workbook which includes key terms and various activities to help you connect the information to your current context.

Time: Saturday: 10.00 – 4.00 pm: Sunday 9.00 – 3.00 pm
