Today, 1 in 5 students struggles with brain-based learning and attention issues, which affect reading, writing, math, organization and focus. Join us to explore the difference between sympathy and empathy, including how bias can drive sympathy. By the end of this session, you will be able to implement strategies to better understand all students, including the 1 in 5, by creating an empathetic learning community for teachers and students alike.

Presenters: Kate Garcia, special science education teacher, grades 9-12, Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, Plymouth Meeting, Pa.; Amanda Morin, senior writer and education expert prek-12, Understood
