Event description

Description

Join us to learn about the emotional impact on students who struggle to read through the lens of the presenter's own struggles. See how the emotional/self-concept side of the learning-to-read equation can become the larger road-block to success. Learn how teachers and parents can emotionally support exceptional students and help foster a student’s pleasure connection with reading.

Guest Speaker: Craig A. Knippenberg, LCSW, M.DIV., has worked for over thirty-six years as a child and family therapist and is the founder/owner of Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley and Associates, P.C., Colorado’s largest private practice that specializes in child and adolescent neurobehavioral disorders. Knippenberg’s YouTube library includes videos about the brain and social/emotional development in children and teens. His first full manuscript: Wired and Connected: Brain-Based Solutions for Your Elementary Child’s Unique Behavioral, Emotional, and Social Development is due out in the fall of 2019.
