From November 06, 2015 8:00 am until November 06, 2015 3:30 pm
At Burgundy Basin Inn
Because of their neurocognitive and emotional vulnerabilities, children and adolescents with Learning Disabilities, ADHD or other challenges are particularly at risk for stress-related disorders and reactions. Neuroscience explains the problem and gives us the knowledge we need to turn this situation around.
Through this interactive, informative session, educators, other professionals and parents will learn about present research, clinical observations, case studies and anecdotal evidence which explain why children and adolescents with LD, ADHD and other challenges have a lower threshold for stress. Dr. Schultz sheds light on the brain/stress/learning connection and explains why executive functions take a back seat to survival behavior in kids who are threatened by the challenges of school.
Chronic stress causes a cascade of stress hormones that have a neurotoxic effect, making the brain less efficient and leading to a cycle of frustration and failure. Students stuck in this cycle are more likely to tune out or drop out. Teaching students about this connection and strategies they can use to gain control over their learning helps them avoid being caught up in chronic stress.
Dr. Schultz’s presentation, based on the latest brain research and supplemented by his many years of work as a teacher and clinician, will provide the tools to understand and manage behaviors that get in the way of learning. Come with questions and leave with answers and no-cost strategies you can implement tomorrow!
