Abstract

This workshop is intended for K-12 Teachers and Leaders. The topic is on Compassionate Leadership and Integrating the LD Student. The workshop's content is predicated on the research and study of Richard Lavoie's work with linguistically & phonologically challenged students, and their difficulty developing social identities among the general population within public schools. In particular, this workshop will present Lavoie's findings in his two authored works "FAT CITY: Frustration, Anxiety, and Tension in the LD Student" and "Last One Picked, First One Picked On" with support from the work of Lavoie's colleague, Charlie Applestein, MSW, and his recently published book, "No Such Thing As a Bad Kid." The aim of the workshop is to provide for the audience lived-experience of having a language-based disability and to provide a discussion about strategies for coaching teachers and support personnel on ensuring the LD student is developing socially and emotionally in the general education classroom.
