Let me take this opportunity to invite your organisation to join the region’s major “5th GCC Learning Disability Conference & Workshops” (LDC) to be organized by Ishara Consultants, on 26th -27th October 2011 at JW Marriott, Dubai – UAE. This key event is expected to trigger a paradigm shift in the perception about the critical so-cial and edu.cational issue of learning disability related to so-cial and emotional cognition in children, adolescents and young adults.

Among the international speakers who will join the event are: Dr. Arlyn Roffman Ph.D., Developmental Psychology from Boston College, M.Ed. in Learning Disabilities from Lesley University, Professor of Spe-cial Edu-cation in Lesley University, 29 Everett St., Cambridge, USA. Ms.Geet Oberoi, research scholar in Effectiveness of remedial intervention in Learning Disabilities, one of the first of its kind research in India, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Spe-cial Edu-cation, Founder Orkids Foundation, India.

The field of learning disability has been primarily dominated by research that examines instructional strategies to foster academic growth in children and young adults. For decades the focus has been on teaching reading, spelling, writing and mathematics – educators assumed that such an emphasis would enable the learning disabled individual to better integrate with his peers. More recently however the spotlight has shifted to examining the social and emotional world of children and young adults with learning disability.

We welcome your organisation to participate in the various sessions, share ideas and network with regional decision makers, so-cial researchers and others.
