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.
