    Abstract: Genetic influences on learning and behavior, once considered rare, are increasingly recognized as common. This workshop updates practicing school psychologists about advances in genetics and concomitant findings about common genetic syndromes as expressed in school. It also helps participants sharpen their thinking regarding the role of environmental and heritable influences on the students they see in schools.  Numerous cases, centered on their classroom expression, are included.
