NEW RELEASE Webinar: Supporting Neurodiverse Students

26th Oct 2020
12:30 PM - 01:30 PM
Online, Australia

Description

Understanding the four most common neurodiverse profiles is essential for all educators to enable greater inclusion and understanding.

Neurodiversity can be difficult to identify in the classroom, especially in adult learners who have developed a range of coping and adaptive strategies for learning. These coping behaviours can sometimes be mistaken for a lack of interest.

Knowing the differences, strengths and challenges of the most common neurodiverse profiles is the first step to building inclusive and engaging learning settings.

Participants will gain an understanding of the four most common neurodiverse profiles – dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia.
