The Social Emotional Side of Learning Differently
Students with learning differences often have distinctive strengths and challenges in the social and emotional domains of their lives. If a child is feeling unsuccessful in the classroom, this experience can negatively impact his or her self-esteem and self-concept as a learner. This presentation will frame some of the social-emotional difficulties children with learning differences face and highlight supportive interventions to increase self-esteem, restore a positive self-concept and enhance social communication skills.
