American Academy to Host Understanding Your Child’s Educational Diagnosis Virtual Event on March 29

American Academy is pleased to host “Understanding Your Child’s Educational Diagnosis,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences: A Speaker Series.” Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the March event is Dr. David A. Yudell, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Finding the “gift within” a child is essential to building confidence and success in school and life. In this episode of “Experts in Learning Differences,” Dr. Yudell will explain how to understand and use educational evaluations to uncover weaknesses and highlight strengths in order to enhance a child’s schooling and benefit his or her academic and social achievements. Throughout his discussion, Dr. Yudell will provide evidence-based, scientifically proven, and effective tools that motivate a child’s entire support system to work together towards improvement and advancement.

“Every individual needs an area in which to shine, particularly those with difficulties in school. Educational evaluations provide a snapshot of a child’s unique abilities in order to reinforce strengths and ensure that self-esteem, motivation, and ambition are not thwarted,” said Dr. Yudell.

Dr. Yudell practices in Broward and southern Palm Beach counties. He specializes in both child and adult pathology and has extensive experience completing psychological evaluations and testing in private and public schools, the Division of Disability, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and in private practice. Dr. Yudell received his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology from NSU and a master’s degree in counseling from Seton Hall University.

The speaker series is streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic. The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.
