Supporting Students with Mental Health and Learning Disorders

Presented by Myles Cooley, Ph.D., Board Certified Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Author
Sponsored by Free Spirit Publishing

One in five K–12 students has a diagnosable mental health disorder. An additional five percent are classified as learning disabled. Most of these students are taught in regular classrooms, yet most teachers have little training in recognizing, understanding, and teaching these students.

In this edWebinar, clinical psychologist Dr. Myles Cooley provides guidelines on supporting these students and communicating with them and their parents. Dr. Cooley describes various mental health and learning disorders, clarifies misunderstandings, and explains new or revised diagnoses. The session features important information about ADHD, dyslexia, autism, self-injury, trauma, and adverse childhood events. In addition, Dr. Cooley discusses the importance of social-emotional learning and culturally responsive classrooms.

This edWebinar will benefit K–12 teachers, school counselors, nurses, social workers, and administrators. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of Dr. Cooley’s presentation.
