So many children experience difficulties academically and we, as parents, struggle to know how to best support their learning and development. This session will focus on providing an overview of the basic reasons why children struggle academically and how to best support them. Jared will focus on providing an understanding of the potential barriers to literacy and numeracy development, as well as issues that can impact comprehension, all of which can impact a child’s belief in their ability to experience academic success
Jared Froese is a Registered Psychologist based out of Red Deer, Alberta who has been providing wide-ranging supports to schools for the last 15 years. In addition to the work Jared completes within the schools he directly contracts with, he is also a member of the diagnostic team with the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Network in Central Alberta that completes multi-disciplinary assessments with both children and adults. As well, Jared has extensive experience working with individuals impacted directly or indirectly by domestic violence. Finally, Jared, whose parents are two now-retired schoolteachers, loves providing educational opportunities for those in a variety of settings, on a variety of topics, as he is a strong believer that when we understand the needs of a child, we are able to far more effectively provide the types of environmental supports and opportunities that allow for optimal growth and development. This relates to specific issues related to cognitive and/or academic development, as well as the manner in which we as parents and/or teachers have an opportunity to promote the determination and grit that all children benefit from in all areas of their life
