Complex Learners: Bridging Assessment and Treatment for Social and Academic Success

On Saturday, October 15th, The Wolf School welcomed over 50 educators, parents, clinicians, educational advocates, Occupational Therapists, and Speech & Language Pathologists for our second annual Complex Learners Conference.  Complex Learners: Bridging Assessment and Treatment for Social and Academic Success provided an in-depth understanding of the ways assessment of Complex Learners informs treatment that results in social and academic gains. The day-long conference began with guest speaker, Dr. Todd Levine, MD, presenting on Behavioral and Medication Assessment of Complex Learners: Symptom Identification and Treatment. Next, Dr. Allison Evans, Ph.D., presented on how to translate neuropsychological testing. A panel presentation with Dr. Levine, Dr. Evans, and Wolf School co-founders Lise Gerard Faulise, MS, OTR/L, BCP and Rosaline Granoff, MA-CCC/SLP, gave participants the opportunity to discuss and get feedback from a range of professionals. The conference ended with afternoon breakout sessions led by Wolf staff. Participants joined one of three break out sessions that explored interventions for younger children, interventions for Middle School children, or ways to create a neuro-educational classroom. Thank you to Dr. Levine and Dr. Evans for joining us and thank you to all participants!
