Kristin Barbour from NILD

*free 90-minute webinar with Kristin Barbour, Executive Director for the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD), presents participants with a unique exploration of the characteristics of learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Participants will engage in tasks that explore learning activities based on auditory and visual perceptual skills.
Research has indicated that auditory and visual discrimination, memory, figure-ground, and attention significantly impact learning.  When perceptual vulnerabilities are present students can appear disinterested in learning or worse, choose to engage in inappropriate behaviors in order to shift the focus from their learning challenges.
The information you will learn in this webinar includes:
  • Identifying three phases of the learning process
  • Recognizing auditory and visual processing skills needed to learn and their impact on classroom performance
  • Differentiating classroom behavioral problems, low motivation, and learning disabilities
  • Learning classroom strategies and home activities to develop processing skills
