  • Did you know that 90% of disabilities are invisible?
  • Can we understand our coworkers and clients “through their brain”?
  • How do we address and eliminate bias based on neurodiversity as we work with clients, colleagues, opposing parties and the courts?
  • What can we understand about our own brain behaviors in order to contribute effectively in the legal environment?

This seminar will address the wide variation of human brain wiring. Michelle Galloway will cover research about neurological differences such as learning disabilities, social cognitive differences (Asperger’s and other “spectrum” issues), ADD/ADHD, and executive functioning disorders and tips for working with clients and colleagues.
