This seminar focuses on identifying the executive function difficulties that characterize many learners with nonverbal learning disabilities.

The main goal of this seminar is to explore neuroscience and educational research as it relates to education, teaching, and learning. To achieve this goal, this seminar is divided into two interrelated parts. First, there will be a discussion of the characteristics of learners with nonverbal learning disability followed by an overview of effective assessment and teaching practices for the said population. In the second part of the seminar, the important components of a comprehensive assessment of the executive functions of the brain will be highlighted. Teaching principles and strategies that have been shown to be effective in addressing the academic and social problems of learners with nonverbal learning disabilities will also be discussed.
