Neuro-diversity – “The brain and how your child learns”
October 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Richard Solomon, clinical director of Delta Consultants, a multi-disciplinary clinical practice located in Providence, will explain how we all learn differently. He will explain the scientific concept of neurodiversity, or how neurological differences are now respected and recognized as a human variation, not a disability. He explains learning differences in this context and connects how the brain works and how children learn or don’t. A question and answer period will follow Dr. Solomon’s presentation.
In his practice, Dr. Solomon completes neuropsychological evaluations, child, adolescent and family therapy in his practice and supervises pre- and postdoctoral interns and residents. He consults to numerous schools throughout New England and in other parts of the country. He is an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at the University of Rhode Island and the past president of Prevent Child Abuse-Rhode Island. Dr. Solomon presents on neurodiversity and learning differences nationally.
Program is presented by the S.E.A.L. Foundation and the Diocese of Fall River Catholic Parent Advocacy Council (CPAC). CPAC is open to all families within the Diocese of Fall River. CPAC offers families a forum for discussion and sharing about the challenges and successes experienced when parenting children with learning differences.
The presentation will take place in the McCarthy Auditorium in the May School of Arts and Sciences at Stonehill College.
