Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 28, 2020 at Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel, Towson, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours / 6.25 hours of continuing education credit. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Speech-Language Pathologists • Teachers • Occupational Therapists & Occupational Therapy Assistants • Other Helping Professionals that Work with Children Course Description: Dyslexia, Dysgraphia or Dyscalculia are among the most complicated learning disorders seen in education today. Many of these students struggle to complete academic tasks, maintain social relationships with peers and adults, and are constantly under stress. In this seminar, you will learn how underlying deficits related to executive function, visual-perceptual and visual-motor skills, and auditory processing skills affect a student’s ability to read and write at grade and age appropriate levels. Participants will explore the impact visual processing, cognitive development and organization have on acquiring mathematic ability, and understand how to support and teach struggling math learners. This presentation shows you how to identify underlying deficits and develop IEPs or 504 plans that effectively address individual student needs. You will develop a plan that includes game-based learning, assistive technology, phonemic and phonological awareness practice, focused auditory interventions and simple techniques to help with visual processing ability. Upon completion of this program, you will be able to provide strategies to address your student’s/client’s: • Visual perceptual skills • Visual motor integration • Auditory and visual memory • Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension • Phonetic awareness and memory • Spelling and handwriting struggles Objectives: • Formulate and implement plans for comprehensive evaluation to identify diagnostic criteria and underlying deficits present in students with reading, written expression, or math learning difficulties. • Develop IEPs or 504 plans that provide students with the instruction and support they need to be successful in reading, writing, math, listening comprehension, and oral expression. • Choose student-centered accommodations based on recommendations of the International Dyslexia • Association and Americans with Disabilities Act. • Design effective strategies to treat underlying deficits in the areas of executive function visual processing, auditory processing, phonemic/phonological awareness, memory, and anxiety to improve reading, writing and math skills. • Teach students self-advocacy and anxiety management skills related to classroom performance, meeting deadlines, and project completion. • Utilize low-tech and high-tech assistive technology supports to help students access information through text, improve study skills, complete written assignments and help with math calculation.

Pharmacology of Infectious Diseases & Immunizations for Advanced Practice Clinicians is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 18, 2020 at Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel, Towson, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Nurses • Advanced Practice Nurses • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Pharmacists • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants Course Description: Attend this seminar and learn proper prescribing, patient education and monitoring procedures for a variety of drug regimens used to treat common acute and chronic infectious diseases. Choosing an antibacterial agent can be challenging, given the plethora of drugs available on the market and the emerging trend in bacterial resistance. You will learn the pharmacology of different classes of antimicrobials used to treat infectious disease states encountered in clinical practice. Discover the spectrums of activity, pharmacokinetic characteristics and parameters for monitoring therapeutic outcomes. Emphasis is placed on the new antimicrobials and advances in evidence-based treatment guidelines. You will leave this seminar better prepared to design appropriate and cost-effective drug regimens for improved therapeutic outcomes. Objectives: • Analyze the major classes of antibiotics and their pharmacokinetic characteristics. • Apply current evidenced-based approaches to select appropriate treatment regimens for common infections encountered in clinical practice. • Prescribe antimicrobials based on empiric dosing recommendations. • Plan goals of therapy and parameters for monitoring therapeutic response to antimicrobials. • Recommend specific antimicrobial therapeutic drug monitoring to maximize efficacy and minimize toxicities (e.g., vancomycin and aminoglycosides). • Develop preventative strategies to limit antimicrobial resistance. • Design patient and caregiver education on the proper use of antimicrobials.
