Neurodivergent learners—and their caregivers—often require services from a variety of specialists with different areas of expertise. This ecosystem of support is critical to navigating the educational system and achieving the desired outcomes both in and out of the classroom. An increased understanding and recognition of learning differences like ADHD, Dyslexia, and ADHD, has brought about enhanced accommodations and support, often giving parents options in who and where they seek support for their child. In this Webinar, our panelists will demystify the support ecosystem by illuminating the common roles within it, including the school psychologist, speech therapist, occupational therapist, behavioral therapist (ABA/BCBA), and the educational therapist. We’ll discuss the function of each, as well as give their perspective on learning and what they typically contribute to the learning process. We’ll uncover the differences in their approaches and how they come together to provide a system of support.
The webinar will consist of a 30-minute expert panelist discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
