Middle school and high school students and their families looking for their best fit for high school are invited to attend the Open House at Miriam Academy, a high school for teens with average to above average intelligence who experience learning challenges.
Every classroom has them — disruptive and distracting students who interrupt their own and others' learning with impulsivity, attention-seeking comments or ongoing teacher power struggles. This workshop explores the brain science behind self-regulation and what motivates the behavior of these students.
Educators and parents are invited to hear from Miriam Academy staff how to teach and practice many topics that teens need to be successful socially. Some of the topics to be discussed include: setting boudaries, active listening, reciprocal conversation, problem solving, collaboration and self-advocacy.
Are you concerned your child or student may have anxiety related to school? Are you struggling to determine what is typical worry and what is true anxiety in your child?
This workshop will provide teachers, educational staff and parents with an overview of underlying neurological considerations of students dealing with sensory processing disorder.
