7 p.m. (est) Kim Kautzer - WriteShop.comWriting Strategies for Struggling Learners It’s not just your child. Truth be told, most students struggle with writing at some level. But when a child learns with difficulty, the challenges are even greater. Poor spelling, illegible handwriting, attention and processing disorders, and physical limitations interfere with the ability to communicate on paper. Typically, the result is short, disorganized, writing that’s riddled with errors. The good news? You know your child better than anyone and care more deeply about his needs—there is much you can do! If your child has mild to moderate learning challenges, this workshop will offer practical ideas and steps you can take to instill both confidence and writing skills in your child.

11 a.m. (est) Tara Jenner - TheBrainTrainers.netBrain Training Is your child's corpus callosum weak? What is it and what does it do? What can you do to strengthen this vital part of the brain. Whether your child is special needs, gifted, or somewhere in between, training this part of the brain through fun and effective techniques is sure to improve their skills from reading to following multi-step commands to memory and more. Tara shares different games and activities you can incorporate in your teaching, to help strengthen the brain. Auditory processing skills are predominantly in the left hemisphere and visual skills are primarily in the right – A strong and efficient corpus callosum is vital for effective and efficient “communication” between the two hemispheres allowing for fluent association of sounds with the written code (spelling and reading) as well as converting instructions to a visual understanding for accurate execution and retention of information.
[The corpus callosum is the arched bridge of nervous tissue that connects the two cerebral hemispheres, allowing communication between the right and left sides of the brain.]Download Handout Here Webinar Webcast here with Slides or Download or Listen to Audio here!
