Putney, VT - Landmark College and the Stern Center for Language and Learning are pleased to announce a dynamic and interactive webinar about upcoming changes to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM).

Educational Perspectives on DSM 5: Anticipated Changes that Impact Students takes place on Tuesday, April 2, from 3 - 4 p.m., EDT.

Dr. Linda Hecker, Lead Educational Specialist of the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training, and Janna Osman, Program Director of Professional Learning for the Stern Center, will share their expertise with educators and parents on how anticipated changes to the DSM may affect individuals and professionals in education.

 “DSM 5 will be published in May, 2013, after a long and contentious review period; we need to be prepared for changes that cause shifts in diagnosis and eligibility for services,” says Hecker.

This co-produced, co-sponsored webinar is a new collaborative effort between Landmark College and the Stern Center for Language and Learning, two Vermont organizations dedicated to improving education for students who learn differently.  The webinar is designed for classroom teachers, special educators, disability support personnel, school psychologists, administrators and academic directors, as well as parents.

Landmark College was the first institution of higher learning to pioneer college-level studies for students with dyslexia. Today Landmark College is a global leader in integrated teaching methods for students with learning disabilities, ADHD, and ASD. Students, faculty, and other professionals from all over the world are drawn to Landmark College for its innovative educational model, one designed through research and practice to help all students who learn differently become confident, self-empowered, and independently successful learners.
