Recognizing and Working with Anxious Students

Presented by Donna Weston, CDT, PCET
 
Priced at $35, Registration closes May 20th @ 11:30am EST

Description: The rates of anxiety in children and youth have grown tremendously, especially for those with learning disabilities. Join us as we examine how anxiety affects the students, but also how to de-escalate the stressful situations and enable the students to be cognitively available for learning.

About the Presenter: Donna Weston is Founder and Executive Director of Discovery Therapies, Inc. (DTI, www.dtiusa.org). She is not only an educator, educational therapist, NILD Board Member, and NILD Instructor, but is also a parent of a learning disabled and ADHD son. Donna started her educational therapy career in private practice, always with the vision of reaching the wider community through a clinic, which she started as her own private business in 2006, hiring her first two educational therapists and part time administrative staff by 2007. In 2010, she founded the nonprofit organization DTI, transferring all equity and services from her business to the nonprofit. Much of her and her staff’s efforts have been devoted to developing not only the best intervention services, but also establishing the processes and procedures that make DTI a highly reputable clinic in the metro Columbia, SC area.
