Join Mary B. Asper, Speech-Language Pathologist and National Presenter, for a day of learning and sharing as we discuss


Diagnosis and Treatment of Specific Learning Disorder

(Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia)


Students diagnosed with Specific Learning Disorder struggle in the classroom to complete academic tasks, to build and maintain social relationships with peers and adults, and are constantly under anxiety and stress. 


This presentation teaches how to identify and assess underlying deficits in the areas of –


  • Executive Function

  • Visual Processing

  • Auditory Processing

  • Phonemic and Phonological awareness

  • Anxiety


…all of which affect a students’ ability to read and write at grade and age appropriate levels.


You will learn how to develop IEPs or 504 plans that include game-based learning, assistive technology, phonemic and phonological awareness practice, focused auditory interventions and simple techniques to help with visual processing ability - all that ensure effective intervention for your students.


Most importantly, you will come away with an increased understanding of why and how these students struggle – and the knowledge and tools you need to help them better succeed!
