Cuesta College’s Disabled Student Programs and Services will host a conference Friday geared toward teachers, professionals, parents and students who have children with disabilities.
The 2015 Learning Disabilities Conference, “The Many Faces of Learning Disabilities,” will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the college’s San Luis Obispo campus in room 5401.
The keynote speaker, clinical psychologist Dr. Jaime Wilson, will focus on identifying and overcoming barriers to obtaining accurate diagnoses of learning disabilities in deaf, hard-of-hearing, late-deafened (people who become deaf after living in a hearing world) and deaf-blind individuals.
There also will be a discussion on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and medical interventions with pediatrician Dr. Wanda Lo, and a panel discussion featuring six experts on learning disabilities.
