If you know and want to help children who have been affected by a form of neurological compromise, no matter whether before or after birth, such as children with ADD, autism, hypersensitivity..., then in this session you can help them benefit from the latest neuroscience research on the more fragile brain and learn how we can apply this to behaviour change and effective learning strategies for life.
Although usually robust, brain development can be affected by events prior to birth, during birth and afterwards and they can lead to complications such as ADHD, autism, hypersensitivity, FAS and many learning difficulties. This workshop will give a short overview of the significant features of brain development, particularly those connected with emotional and social development, and then focus on some practical strategies to work with children whose brains are currently more fragile than others. New knowledge of brain functioning and brain development hold hope for helping children affected in this way and the workshop is optimistic about changes that can be made.
