Cognitive and Academic Remediation of School Age
Internationally Adopted Children

Often the origins and manifestation of cognitive and academic delays in internationally adopted children
can be identified through an understanding of the orphanage experience and
through other indications in the pre-adoption documentation.
This workshop will review the early symptoms of Cumulative Cognitive Deficit (CCD) and
will show how it can impact the school age child.
Additionally, Dr. Gindis will discuss the benefits of psycho-educational evaluation
in order to determine the "school readiness" of a newly adopted child and make the beginning of the school experience more productive and less traumatic for the child.
