Updated: 2 days ago

Watch Recording Here (Recorded 5/4/22)

Slow processing speed affects every part of a child's life; however, most people know little about it beyond perhaps a score on the WISC test. Join educational therapist Marcy Dann to learn where processing speed is used in daily life and how it affects routines, academics, socializing, and emotions for 2e learners. Come away with ideas on how to support your child by making supportive changes to their home and school environments. Balance our speed-valuing culture with a discussion of advantages that come with this difference.
