This workshop will discuss the role that grit – a trait characterized by courage, conscientiousness and resilience – plays in the success of a child with a learning disability. We will examine how to define grit and how it can be measured in a child. We will also review interventions that promote the development of social and emotional resilience in children and how to enhance those skills to protect children with reading disorders from emotional distress.
