Dr. Marshall Raskind – Life Success for Students with Learning Disabilities: What Does the Research Say?
While acknowledging the importance of “school success,” it is critical not to discount the broader notion of “life success”. Drawing from his own 20-year study that traced the lives of children with learning disabilities from childhood into adulthood, Dr. Marshall Raskind will discuss the factors predictive of positive life outcomes. He will also present a conceptual model for fostering these “success attributes” in youth with learning disabilities.
Dr. Marshall Raskind, an educational researcher and consultant, is the former Director of Research and Special Projects at the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation in San Francisco. He served as Director of Research at the Frostig Center in Pasadena, California. He headed the California State University, Northridge Learning Disability Program and Computer Access Lab. He has served as consulting editor to the Journal of Learning Disabilities, Learning Disability Quarterly, Annals of Dyslexia, Journal of Special Education Technology, and Intervention in School and Clinic. Dr. Raskind is a Fellow and past Vice President of the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities, as well as a former member of the Research Committee of the Council for Learning Disabilities, and the Professional Advisory Board of the National Center for Learning Disabilities.
His research interests are in the areas of learning disabilities across the lifespan, factors predictive of “life success,” assistive technology, and most recently, the impact of online social networking on children with learning and attention problems.
