Three-day intensive, hands-on workshops (or “strands”) form a core component of our Institute experience. Strands run each afternoon from 1:15 – 4 p.m. Participants choose one and stay in the same strand for all three days.
Single sessions are short (~1.25 hour) presentations on a range of topics with relevance for educators working with students with LD, ADHD, and ASD. Single sessions focus on practical take-aways and/or cutting-edge research in the field of learning differences.
