TWO OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS
TO LEARN MORE ABOUT LEARNING DISABILITIES
The 31st annual state convention of the Nebraska Learning Disabilities Association is set for Oct. 28 in southwest Omaha at ESU #3, 6949 S. 110th St. Speaker is Nancy Mather, Ph.D., a nationally renowed LD expert. For more on this important event, see www.ldanebraska.org
Also this week, Nebraskans were offered a chance to learn more about "dual diagnosis" students -- those who are both gifted and learning disabled -- at a speech and Q&A session led by Marlo Rice, a school psychologist and education consultant. It's uncanny how similar the traits of giftedness are to the traits of what educators label "learning disabilities." The event was held at the Westside Community Conference Center.
