Burke Presents: Accommodations vs Real World Skills

On Friday, January 26, Burke is offering a continuing education opportunity: Accommodations vs Real World Skills.  The training will be conducted by Le’Ann L. Solmonson, Ph.D., LPC-S, CSC, Professor at Stephen F. Austin State University.

The training will be held at Angelina Mental Health Services, 1522 West Frank Street, Friday, January 26, 2017.  Arrive for check-in from 8:30 – 9:00 am, the training will begin at 9:00 and last until noon.

Program Description:

When working with students with a diagnosis that results in academic or behavioral struggles in school, we often advocate for accommodations to assist the student to be more successful. However, that may not always be in the student’s best interest. This presentation will consider the long-term impact of accommodations and discuss skills training that will benefit the student throughout life.


  1. Participants will develop an awareness of educational requirements necessary to qualify for educational accommodations.
  2. Participants will identify long-term impact of educational accommodations.
  3. Participants will be able to articulate skills that can compensate for symptoms related to executive functioning deficits.

This program has applied for 3.0 hours of continuing education hours for social workers, LPC’s and LMFT’s.  There will not be a registration fee for this training as our presenter is an SFASU faculty member who has donated her time.  Limited seats are available, registration is required in advance.
