Presented by: James B. Hale, PhD, MEd, ABPdN
An artificial distinction is often made between specific learning disabilities (SLD) being a posterior brain problem, with psychopathology more related to anterior brain dysfunction in the frontal-subcortical circuitry (FSC). This presentation will highlight how FSC's, in their regulatory role of all learning and behavior, can influence apparently disparate disorders, suggesting a shared etiology in the manifestation and expression of both SLD and psychopathology. With Circuit Balance Theory as our guide, participants will recognize the value of comprehensive executive function evaluation, not only in understanding child psychopathology, but also in understanding how it leads to SLD. Implications for differential diagnosis and intervention/treatment will be explored.
8/13 7-9 PM (EST).
