Melissa FellerMS, CCC-SLP as the 2017 Keynote Speaker! She comes to us from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston. She speaks extensively on the executive function and self-regulation demands of the writing process and how SLPs and teachers can support students in managing these demands. Her presentations are informed by the language and learning disability literature, her experience assessing and treating students with LLD, dyslexia, ADHD, and NLD (to a lesser extent high functioning autism) and consulting with families around educational programming, and her prior experience working with an interdisciplinary neuropsychological assessment team at a private educational practice. Her current research interest is the writing profiles of children with dyslexia.
