Techniques of Educational Therapy: Affective, Cognitive and Perceptual Elements | EDTH.X305


This course explores the fundamental cognitive processes that are necessary for learning to occur at maximum capacity. These include motor, auditory, visual, visual motor integration and verbal processing areas. The course will also include how to increase the functionality of these areas as well as attending skills. The "affect" of learning or how the student feels about himself in terms of academic performance will also be addressed. We review possible scenarios of client experiences and how to support their learning.
