About The Meeting:
The phrase "learning disability" conjures up an academic struggle. But there's more to learning than reading or math. We absorb the world -- with our eyes, our ears, our hands, our feet -- in settings that go well beyond the classroom.
Certain everyday skills -- reading faces, interacting with peers, navigating physical space, dealing with confusion, switching gears -- are mastered easily by some. But not all.
For slow learners, is it possible to pick up the pace?
Audience participation will be welcome. Professionals -- psychologists, neuropsychologists, learning disability specialists -- are invited to share remedial techniques they use with patients.
