The term "learning disability" (LD) was coined in 1960, but the definition of LD and strategies for its diagnosis and intervention have evolved considerably. This workshop offers teachers, counselors, administrators, social workers, and related professionals an introduction to the latest LD research. Recent advances in technology have increased our knowledge of neuropsychological methods for understanding and diagnosing LD. You will gain a greater comprehension of the components of processing deficits in LD such as attention, memory, impulsivity, social cognition, and sensory perception. You will explore the most current and effective intervention strategies for students with LD, and learn how to distinguish between LD and a learning style.
