Description:

Every human being wants to do well. Every child wants to succeed and make their parents and teachers happy. However, it can be really hard to be a kid sometimes, especially for our neurodivergent children. We are demanding more from them than ever before, especially at school.. While academic and other demands have changed, what hasn’t changed is the course of human development. Current advances in neuroscience have taught us so much about 1) how the brain works and 2) what kids need so they can feel safe, regulated and ready to meet our expectations. We will gain a new understanding about the “why” of childhood behavior and learn strategies to support kids, improve their behavior and help them thrive.

Objectives

Following this training, participants will be able to:

  1. List  the 8 sensory systems and describe how they impact development, motor skills, and performance at home, school, and in the community.
  2. Identify and describe when sensory processing or environmental stressors are impacting behavior and list practical strategies to better support them.
  3. Identify and describe self-regulation challenges and implement realistic, collaborative strategies to empower kids and help them meet expectations.
