Enhancing Support for Special Populations through Understanding Neurodiversity

ICSPS invites you to join Dr. Ann P. McMahon for an engaging and informative day learning to serve learners through an understanding of neurodiversity.  Dr. McMahon will provide an overview of the research on how attachment, scarcity, trauma and response to failure form neurodiverse patterns in the brain.  Participants will be invited to apply the research to create strategies that accommodate neurodiverse learners in their classrooms.  Through an increased understanding of neurodiversity, workshop attendees will be better equipped to support learners to consider, pursue and succeed in both traditional and nontraditional careers.
