December 2, 2018 – Supporting Students with MENTAL HEALTH Needs at School

Classroom BehaviourHONG KONG

This lecture style introductory workshop is designed to assist teachers, social workers, SLP’s, and other professionals involved in the educational and mental health field to learn to support children with behavioural challenges and learning problems. The sensory processing approach assists in “looking beyond the behaviour” and into the nervous system. It helps with understanding how the child’s behaviour is a manner of coping. Strategies in adapting the environment, altering interactions and providing appropriate supports for children that have difficulty in processing sensory information will be provided. Many children with different diagnoses experience challenges in the manner in which they process sensory information (eg learning disabilities, developmental coordination disorder, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, FASD, cerebral palsy and emotional behavioural disorders). This workshop is designed to assist in problem solving how to support children beyond their diagnoses in a wide variety of environments.
