C8 Sciences is happy to announce that our co-founder and Chief Scientist, Bruce E. Wexler, M.D., will be presenting at the SXSWedu conference in Austin Texas on Monday, March 7, 2016.

Dr. Wexler is Senior Research Scientist and Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine. Author of Brain and Culture (MIT Press) and over 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles, Dr. Wexler received a highly prestigious NIH Director’s Award for “high impact, high innovation, potentially paradigm changing research.” He is internationally recognized as a pioneer in developing computer-presented brain training exercises, and is regularly invited to lecture in Asia, Europe, South America as well as at universities throughout North America.

He will be participating in a panel discussion, along with three other special education experts, focusing on special education and the countless changes that have taken place in the field.

Teachers, parents, school administrators, mental health professionals, and even students will benefit from this thought-provoking discussion/workshop. “Why YOU Should Care About Special Education,” will be presented from 12:30PM-1:30PM at the Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon D.

Knowledge is power. Dr. Wexler and the other members of the panel will share their wealth of information with the participants in attendance. They’ll discuss the benefits of investing in the research, teaching methods, and delivery of special education services and the positive impact it will have on society. If children with disabilities are properly educated, they can be successful, productive members of our communities.

C8Sciences’ ACTIVATE™ program has proven to be a key to unlocking the academic potential in children with ADHD and other brain disorders. Obstacles to learning are overcome when children with disabilities are exposed to this exciting, alternate method of teaching and learning.

Dr. Wexler is looking forward to sharing information about his revolutionary brain-training program, and participating in this informative panel discussion. The goal of “Why YOU Should Care About Special Education” is to enlighten the public and encourage attendees to join the movement to enhance and promote special education.
