Description

Information Sessions for Health Professionals Regarding the Relationship between Treatment Strategies and Learning Difficulties

Health professionals are constantly considering the factors of success in the treatments they provide. One factor that may not be readily understood is the cognitive profile of the patient. For instance, how does a difficulty with reasoning affect the ability to benefit from therapy? What is the link between learning difficulties and mental health and wellbeing challenges?

Two information sessions on October 25th at 2:00 and 7:00 PM will explore this important topic. The focus will be on learning disorders that impact academic performance such as reading and writing and some of the findings from research studies.

Arrowsmith Program has been working with students with learning difficulties for nearly 40 years right here in Toronto.

In this presentation Jessica Poulin, Strategic Operations Manager of the Arrowsmith Program will explore a wide breadth of learning outcomes for health professionals:

· Learning difficulties and its impact on health professional treatment outcomes
· Learning disorders that impact academic performance such as reading and writing
· The link between learning disabilities and mental health
· How the principles behind the Arrowsmith Program and cognitive capacity support health professions
· A number of learning disorders that impact the learner in school and those that affect us in life
· Relevant research studies assisting our understanding of learning disorders

For health professionals including speech therapists, occupational therapists, counsellors, psychiatrists, pediatricians and family doctors.

Kindly RSVP by registering for your chosen time.
