Learn why students who have a poor understanding of the conditions that impact their learning are under chronic stress and why this impairs learning. Liberally laced with stress-reducing cartoons and stories that entertain as well as educate, this presentation will provide an overview of the brain systems involved in the stress response and offer many practical strategies that can stop this self-defeating cycle in its tracks.

Jerome Schultz, Ph.D., is a clinical neuropsychologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, and Chair of the Professional Advisory Board of the Learning Disabilities Association (LDA) of America. He has specialized in the neuropsychological assessment and treatment of children with learning disabilities, ADHD, and other special needs for over three decades, and is a sought-after speaker at national and international conferences. Dr. Schultz has written extensively about children with learning challenges, including his book, Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with ADHD and LD Hate School and What We Can Do About It, which examines the role of stress in learning. In addition, Dr. Schultz was the recipient of the 2016 LDA Award, an honor bestowed on individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of learning disabilities.
