    FREE Webinar: Managing Anxiety in Students with Learning Disabilities

    Published April 5, 2018, by LDAOeng Students with learning disabilities (LDs) are more likely to experience anxiety than their peers without LDs (Nelson & Harwood, 2010). However, the presence of a learning disability may complicate the identification of an anxiety disorder. In addition, intervention approaches and classroom strategies need to take into account both the LD profile and the anxiety symptoms. In this advanced level webinar, we will review subtypes of anxiety disorders to understand what they may look like in a school setting. We will share practical strategies for supporting the student with LDs and anxiety, reflecting challenging issues such as school refusal, selective mutism, social anxiety, and obsessive- compulsive disorder, for example. 0 Comments

    How can technology be used to support reading comprehension?

    Published October 3, 2017, by LDAOeng The act of reading draws on many different processes simultaneously.

    Webinar Recording: Growth Mindset: Putting Positive Thinking into Practice

    Published October 2, 2017, by LDAOeng For educators, setting the stage for a successful school year begins with practicing and applying a growth mindset in your daily approach. Students with learning disabilities (LDs) can struggle with negative self-image, poor self-esteem and a lack of resilience; these students may have a “fixed mindset”. A growth mindset has been shown to increase positive learning outcomes for students with LDs, and educators can impact their students’ well-being and achievement by modelling a growth mindset for learning. This webinar will provide educators with an understanding of the relationship between growth mindset and achievement, as well as resources and strategies for supporting students with LDs. 0 Comments
