Parents and caregivers of children are faced with balancing multiple responsibilities on a daily basis: housework, childcare, errands, work, etc! Parents and caregivers of children with special needs are faced with all of those responsibilities PLUS the added challenges of raising a child or children with unique behaviors and needs.
The negative impact of anxiety on all areas of cognitive functioning, particularly attention and learning, has been well established in educational and psychological research. However, more recent studies suggest that the relationship between these variables is more complex than originally theorized. This workshop will provide a review of the theories of academic anxiety, discuss facets of executive functioning, and clarify the relationship between these factors and student performance in individuals with and without learning disabilities.
Guardianships are a powerful tool that many children with special needs may require when they become an adult, but should be implemented only when other, less restrictive, approaches to surrogate decision making are not appropriate. Join us to learn what your options are and how they, combined with Special Needs Trusts, can protect your child as they transition into adulthood.
