Lucie M. Curtiss & Dr. Douglas Curtiss To Discuss Dyslexia At Bridgeport Hospital Grand Rounds
Lucie M. Curtiss & Dr. Douglas Curtiss to present at Bridgeport Hospital Pediatric Grand Rounds, discussing dyslexia.
By: Dyslexic AND UN-Stoppable, LLC
Early Identification of Dyslexia - Since early intervention is effective in helping children overcome the challenges of dyslexia, the Curtiss's will present some of the early warning signs of dyslexia
Differentiating Dyslexia and ADHD - Since many children with learning challenges can exhibit symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity, the Curtisses will be helping the pediatricians learn how to differentiate the two
Navigating the School System - Parents of dyslexic children often find the task of helping their children in the school system daunting. Part of a pediatrician's job is to help their patients' parents steer through this system. So the Curtisses will help make this task more clear for pediatricians.
Dyslexia and Self-Esteem - Children with learning challenges, such as dyslexia, can suffer with poor self-esteem. This lower self-esteem can lead to poor performance in school, which can further affect self-esteem. The Curtisses will help pediatricians learn how they can help support their patients' self-esrpteem.
The talk will occur in the Hollander Auditorium of Bridgeport Hospital on March 15th from 8:30 to 9:30AM
