a great Saturday inTucson

What could be better than a March day in Tucson with lots of legal writing colleagues?

Richard Neumann started off this morning's programs with a presentation on ADD and learning disabilities (with a focus on dyslexia).  He gave a clear and informative program that defined both ADD and LD, set out their characteristics, and emphasized that these conditions are neurological, not psychological.  He explored how ADD may be an asset in that it enhances the ability to think outside the box--an asset not always rewarded in legal (or other) education.  He also gave compelling examples of how traditional classrooms are not supportive of those with ADD and LD and how LRW teachers can help those students to perform to the best of their ability.
