ICD doctoral student to address Minnesota School Psychology Association Midwinter Conference
Sherryse Corrow, doctoral student at the Institute of Child Development, will present Face Blindness: A Disorder We've (Often) Been Missing discussing developmental prosopagnosia at the 2012 Minnesota School Psychology Association Midwinter Conference in Bloomington, MN on February 3. Corrow hopes to build bridges between research and practice in education by providing current research information about developmental prosopagnosia to school psychologists from across the state. Corrow says: "We hope that, by informing school psychologists, we may prevent these children (with DP) from slipping through the cracks or being misdiagnosed." The Minnesota School Psychology Association also will publish a short article in their statewide newsletter written by Corrow and undergraduate research assistant Amanda Wanous that briefly summarizes developmental prosopagnosia and what teachers can look for in the classroom to identify developmental prosopagnosia in their students.
