SPEAKER: Dr. Rienzi Haytasingh
Navigating the educational system for the proper supports and services can be impossible at times. Children with Bipolar Disorder struggle, mostly because their disability is a "hidden" one. Many times children with Bipolar Disorder require a complexity of services that are not easily understood or provided. Dr. Haytasingh will provide valuable knowledge from over 22 years working with children in school who have Bipolar Disorder. Dr. Haytasingh will discuss the following issues related to educating children and adolescents with Bipolar Disorder:
1. Neuropsychological Assessment of Children with Bipolar Disorder
2. Eligibility for special education: a continuum of services.
3. Educational planning in elementary, middle, and secondary school.
4. Preparing the student for adulthood.
