Students with learning disabilities often face barriers to their academic success, but you can help them to overcome those obstacles and reach their fullest potential. Join Dorothy A. Osterholt and Sophie Lampard Dennis as they illustrate how students with learning disabilities can come to understand how their academic success is affected by four key domains of learning: self-management, motivation, skill-attainment, and social-emotional aspects. Dorothy and Sophie will explain the important role of these domains in developing students' ability to thrive and build self-advocacy skills. Their discussion of the key learning domains will enhance your understanding of the complex barriers to learning that students with learning disabilities often experience so that you can better identify and help eliminate those barriers for your students.

Thank you
Very interesting how the 4 domains play a role in students ability for self advocacy.
This is probably the most useful video I have watched so far (in terms of my own students). The Four Domains of Learning, but, more importantly, the list of actionable steps that students can take, to make their learning process more smooth. I especially like how they pulled in the teachings of Charles DuHigg.
Very informative!
Nice work
