This course offers full, up-to-the-minute research findings in the brain functions underlying learning, with emphasis on language-learning. Students will learn about the history of psychology, brain structure, brain development, and neurological anomalies that produce learning differences.

The course will discuss how to use different intervention strategies based on a better understanding of how neurological conditions affect learning. Specifically, students will learn how to analyze behaviors and create more effective learning environments both in a one-to-one teaching environment as well as in the classroom.

Students will also learn how to read and analyze neuro-psychological testing to designthe most effective learning interventions. This class is ideal for all teachers, academic therapists, tutors and parents who wish to better understand the neurological strengths and weaknesses of their learners.
