October 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Facilitator: Adina Soclof, MS, CCC-SLP
Description: There are challenges that can sidetrack children in their developmental and educational processes, leaving them with a sense of discouragement and helplessness. Such challenges include learning differences, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, behavior disorders, and executive functioning deficits. Left unchecked, these difficulties can cause children to develop the idea that they are not capable of success in school, precipitating a downward spiral of poor self-esteem and – eventually – school failure. The good news is that much better outcomes can result when parents, teachers, and therapists engage children in strategies and activities that help them overcome their discouragement and develop their innate intelligence and strengths, resulting in a growth mindset and a love of learning. In this Deep Dive Study group, we will examine learning differences, identify common challenges that can disrupt children’s learning, explore techniques for helping children become aware of and use their own strengths, and discuss multiple strategies and techniques that can lead to our students’ positive outcomes.
