Camp notes: SDS behavioral, social and learning issues

Great talk by Dr. Kerr.

She said that our SDS kids need to have neuropsych evals and to be sure that is what we got….because many psychologists are limited to achievement testing. There are actually colleges who now offer special services….look on the websites for more info (the particular colleges—she did not list them) She gave handouts for her talk, so my notes are short on this one. SDS kids need to be taught specific learning strategies when they have problems… When I get home, I can type in more from the handout—very interesting stuff…I believe the handout said there was a bit more of ADHD in SDS…..
