The public is invited to the Warren Township Library for a session on "Cognitive Skills: Understanding Learning Challenges," from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday in the program room at the library building at 42 Mountain Blvd.
In this program, attendees will learn about the seven key brain skills that make learning possible, according to information from the library. The course will provide methods for detecting students with weak skills and tools to help strengthen those skills. Specific strategies will be provided to help teachers apply this understanding in the classroom.
According to the U. S. Department of Education, over 80 percent of learning problems are due to weak cognitive skills, according to the library's website.
The session is presented by LearningRx Warren.
This workshop is free of charge and is appropriate for adults who work with children. Attendees will receive 1.5 professional development hours.
Registration is required, and may be done online, in person or by phone.
Those with questions should call the Youth Services Department at 908-754-5554 ext. 23.
