This one-day workshop will give you 30 Proven and Effective Self-Regulation and Executive Function Strategies to better understand and intervene with children who have challenges with sensory processing, dysregulation, anxiety and executive function. Dr. Kenney will integrate research from neuroscience, kinesiology, occupational therapy, music and speech/language therapy. We will explore cognitive and movement activities to improve learning and behaviour.
With improvements in research utilizing fMRI to measure brain activation, we are quickly learning that the learning and behaviour management techniques commonly used in the past are not only ineffective but may increase stress which decrease both thinking skills and self-regulation in children and adolescents. Establishing secure connections with kids, partnering with them in problem solving and using neuro-biologically rooted strategies are more effective ways to improve both learning and behaviour.
Importantly, in the past 10 years we have learned that thinking skills in the brain are supported by cognitive-motor movement, rhythm-based learning, music, beat perception and cognitive skills coaching. Where we used to believe that IQ was stable, we now know that students from low-stimulation environments, students with ADHD, learning differences, trauma and concussion may improve their learning skills with coaching, cognitive-exercise and lifestyle improvements.
This workshop will give you 30+ effective cognitive-motor, executive function and self-regulation strategies to better understand and intervene with children who have challenges with executive function, learning, anxiety, sensory processing and dysregulation. Integrating research from neuroscience, kinesiology, occupational therapy, music and speech/language therapy, we will explore cutting edge cognitive-movement activities to improve learning and behaviour.
Teaching students how they think, learn and behave empowers them to play an active role in their own learning. When children with ADHD, anxiety, learning differences, oppositional tendencies and disinterest in school are taught how to be “Cognitive Scientists” coaching their own brains to plan, prioritize, attend and remember, they become more invested in school and motivated to learn.
Taking the mystery out of executive functions by showing students how to learn more efficiently while calming their defensive brains leads to better concentration, improved attention, higher academic achievement and competent social-emotional skills.
In this workshop, Lynne Kenney, Psy,D., pediatric psychologist, author and international educator, will show you how to integrate the newest research in neuroscience, kinesiology and cognitive education for students to learn more efficiently. You will discover over 30 developmentally progressive cognitive-exercises, worksheets and activities to enliven your classroom, office and clinic. Learn how to improve cognition, enhance learning and empower children to be better thinkers with motor movement, sequencing, attending, self-regulation and memory activities.
Dress comfortably, as we will be moving to think and calming to learn with balls, body percussion, rhythm activities, yoga and music.
