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.

Good Information
I agree with the four key domains of learning: self-management, motivation, skill-attainment, and social-emotional aspects. These domains carry into social emotional learning also. Thank you for a wonderful webinar. Self-Advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself as a student, making your own decisions about your own life, learning how to get information so that you can understand things that are of interest to you, finding out who will support you in your journey, knowing your rights and responsibilities, problem solving, and listening to your inner spirit for self-determination.
