Join Kim Ashby, BSN, as she discusses how a child’s developmental level, not just her chronological age, is important for learning success. Focus will be on screening techniques, the importance of establishing dominance, and how to modify curricula and your teaching methods in order to help address these issues to help make learning fun and to help your children retain what they are learning. From new babies to high schoolers who struggle, from children with diagnosed learning disabilities to those who are “outside-the-box” learners, there will be something for everyone.
