Please join us for a day of conversation and discussion with expert advice about working with children and youth with learning and attention differences. Choose from sessions for both parents and educators. Go home with new understandings and practical tips for supporting your kids whether at home or in the classroom.
Register for the Educator track and select one of these three sessions:
Everyone seems to be talking about the importance of Executive Functioning. Are you wondering –what is it really? And how can I as an educator teach and embed these valuable skills in my instruction and classroom? Sign up for this educator workshop and you’ll walk away with the strategies you need to promote executive function skills in your classroom. This session will be taught by Cindy Lopez, Director of Community Connections at CHC.
Does student behavior often interfere with learning? Too often educators need more tools to address the ever changing behavioral, emotional, and social needs of students in special education classrooms. Sign up for this educator workshop to learn about a framework to utilize to address challenging behavior in your classroom. This session will be taught by Jody Miller, Head of EBC Schools.
The concept of differentiating instruction is often perceived as ominous and impractical. This workshop for educators will demystify how differentiating can actually become a teacher’s ally because it expands the options teachers have at their disposal. This session will be taught by Chris Harris, Chief Schools Officer at CHC.
Register for the Parent track that includes both of these sessions:
In this intensive parent workshop, learn more about all aspects of Psycho-Educational Assessments–what is included, how to understand the results, and strategies for using the assessment to effectively support your child. This session will led by Dr. Melanie Hsu, Clinical Program Manager.
No one knows your child like you do. In this intensive parent workshop, learn more about how to effectively support and advocate for your child. We’ll provide tips and strategies for having conversations — starting with your own child about their strengths and challenges, as well as your child’s teacher or principal, and even your spouse and other family members. This session will led by Kendra Evans Fraka, LCSW.
