Facilitated by Dr. Steven R Shaw

PAA & the University of Calgary Werklund School of Education: Integrated Services in Education present

 

Educational & Mental Health Resilience for Students with Mild Cognitive Disabilities: Translating Research into Practice

 

 

School psychologists, teachers, and other educators will learn new ideas and methods for improving both school performance and experience of students who present with Borderline intelligence and mild cognitive disabilities. The goals of the workshop are to address the academic and social-emotional needs of these students while also maximizing educational strategies and resources.

 

The six topics to be discussed are: real world and classroom effects, converting assessment results into effective interventions, proven teaching methods for reading, writing and mathematics, improving academic motivation, mental health and behavioural issues, and teaching students how to thrive instead of how to survive. The goal is to address the needs of these students while saving teacher time and resources.

 

  Steven R. Shaw is associate professor in the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology at McGill University in Montreal. He has 16 years of experience as a practicing psychologist in school, hospital, and independent practice
