Founder of ADHD Essentials
Dyslexia and ADHD have become buzzwords in today’s educational landscape. Frequently, children who struggle with reading also struggle with attention, and vice versa. What do these diagnoses mean about the way our children learn best? How can we create better educational interventions to help our children feel successful in school? Join us for a discussion with Dr. Joanna Christodoulou and Brendan Mahan about reading, attention, and the brain.
Topics covered will include:
- Unpacking the definition of dyslexia, ADHD, and the characteristics associated with each diagnosis.
- Understanding the brain basis of reading development, dyslexia, executive function, and attention.
- Implementing effective strategies and interventions to help children who struggle with dyslexia and ADHD.
