Emotional and Behavioral Challenges Associated with Learning Disabilities

There are many emotional and behavioral challenges that students experience associated with learning difficulties and disabilities. These may include low self-esteem, social skills deficits, anxiety, depression, peer rejection, substance abuse, health complaints and more. Learning Disabilities may increase or exacerbate existing social-emotional or behavioral issues. In some cases, social-emotional and behavioral issues may mask a child's learning disability whereas in other cases these issues may exacerbate a child's learning disability. This webinar will discuss key symptoms, resiliency factors, positive coping strategies for the student and family, and evidence-based interventions and supports to consider.

This session will be presented by:
Dr. Rory A. Panter, Psy.D. and Dr. Joseph Ferrito
