Enhancing Support for Special Populations through Understanding Neurodiversity


ICSPS invites you to join Dr. Ann P. McMahon for an engaging and informative day learning
to serve learners through an understanding of neurodiversity. Dr. McMahon will provide
an overview of the research on how attachment, scarcity, trauma and response to failure form
neurodiverse patterns in the brain. Participants will be invited to apply the research to create strategies that accommodate neurodiverse learners in their classrooms. Through an
increased understanding of neurodiversity, workshop attendees will be better equipped to support learners to consider, pursue and succeed in both traditional and nontraditional careers.
