We live in a world where quick responding is considered an essential skill; however, many children feel left behind. Dr. Braaten will provide an overview of processing speed and its relationship to today’s quick-paced lifestyles, classroom environments, and home lives. She will discuss (1) the connection between processing speed and other issues such as ADHD, learning disabilities, and anxiety, (2) how slower processing can affect a child’s social relationships and classroom performance, and (3) how parents and teachers can best accommodate and help students who have trouble keeping up.

Dr. Ellen Braaten is the Executive Director of the Learning and Emotional Assessment Program (LEAP) at Massachusetts General Hospital, and an Associate Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Braaten is widely recognized as an expert in the field of pediatric neuropsychological and psychological assessment, particularly in the areas of assessing learning disabilities and attentional disorders. She is the co-author of many books and articles for parents and professionals including the bestselling book, Bright Kids Who Can’t Keep Up. Her newest book, Bright Kids Who Couldn’t Care Less: How to Rekindle Your Child’s Motivation will be published by Guilford Press in early 2023.
