Stanford Neurodiversity Virtual Summit
Updated: Oct 27, 2020
REEL has been working on a K-12 strand that addresses the needs of neurodiverse students. We've got three great sessions lined up!
Oct 17 6:00pm: What Works and Wish List for K-12 Student Experience
Neurodivergent panelists - including high school and college students as well as an alumna and educator at a school for twice exceptional learners - share their experiences as K-12 students, including what neurodiversity means to them, what neurodiversity-related advocacy or education looks like from their perspective, and which educational support structures have been most helpful.
Oct 19 4:30pm: Leveraging Strengths to Build Skills for College and Work
Veteran educator Jay Michael Dunlap and psychologist Louise Olivia Kindell, Psy.D., share their insights about helping neurodivergent children, their parents, and their educators to leverage children’s strengths and build college- and career-ready skills.
Oct 20, 4:30pm: Diagnostic Disparities
Receiving an accurate diagnosis and timely support is critical for K-12 students. Misdiagnosis, underdiagnosis, and lack of support can adversely impact students’ educational, psychological, and emotional well-being. In this session, we will discuss the intersection of disability with other forms of marginalization, including race.
Registration begins Sept 8! http://med.stanford.edu/neurodiversity.html
