Howard Rossman Speakers Series 

Thinking Differently about Learning Differently


Planning for the 2019-20 Thinking Differently about Learning Differently series is underway. Get the latest information about Dearborn events and activities. And be sure to be part of these dynamic community discussions and presentations.

The 2018-2019 season brought excellent speakers to the Dearborn community. Through it, we celebrated the varied ways in which students learn, the cornerstone of the Dearborn philosophy. Featuring three expert-led community discussions, the series helped families, educators, advocates and others understand how to help young people who learn differently build strategies to achieve academic and social success.

The series began in late January with Understanding & Treating Anxiety in Children with Dr. Sabrina Popp. It was followed in March with a screening Angst: A Movie of Hope and a Q&A with Dr. Robert Brooks and Dearborn staff member Amy Piepiora, associate director of clinical services. Dr. Ellen Braaten rounded out the series in early May with Slow Brain Processing in a Warp-Drive World.
