Learning disabilities are the topic of free seminar Nov. 19

A free seminar focused on young adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and learning disabilities (ADHD/LD) will be offered Nov. 19 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“Looking Forward, Living Now: A Self-Determined Approach to Success in High School, College and Beyond for Young Adults with ADHD/LD” is the theme for the 12th annual Timothy B. and Jane A. Burnett Seminar for Academic Achievement. It will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center.

This seminar will focus on the science and art of self-determination — the ability to explore dreams, define goals and action plans, and be in charge of one’s life. The keynote speaker is Sharon L. Field, the co-director of the Initiative for Self-Determination in the College of Education at Wayne State University

The event will also stream live and be available later on the YouTube channel of the UNC Learning Center, a program in the College of Arts and Sciences.
