Statistics are reflecting that as many as one in five have a diagnosable mental illness. Join this session to learn about some of the common diagnoses and how they impede performance in classroom settings. We will not stop here! With each diagnosis discussed, you will learn practical strategies to support students with managing symptoms, improve performance, and reach their goals! Additionally, participants will learn how to equip classrooms to be supportive of students' social and emotional needs from the very start!
