Intermediate Strategies for Building Better Brains: How Improving Executive Functioning Skills Fosters Social, Emotional and Academic Success in ALL Types of Learners
Virtual Training with Dr. Sharon Saline, hosted by The Bridge Training Institute
Would you like practical tools to help kids harness their natural potential, reduce stress and get things done with less arguing and more cooperation? Whether it’s academics, social challenges, mental health issues or technology, many children and teens struggle with feeling overwhelmed and can’t seem to keep up, especially those young people with ADHD, high-functioning ASD, twice exceptional profiles (2E) or learning disabilities. You’ll learn how to navigate their complex mix of biology, behavior and emotion, strengthen essential executive functioning skills to improve both home and school experiences and foster self-reliant, connected independence.
By focusing on a strength-based, positive psychology approach and including kids’ voices in problem-solving, participants will learn how to create effective interventions that go beyond medication and crisis management. You will have opportunities to discuss your clients and brainstorm new interventions for your work together. You will leave this workshop with tangible strategies for identifying and nurturing cognitive strengths in young people to help them overcome daily challenges and improve their home and school experiences.
Moving on from high school to the next chapter can be particularly challenging for these young people. It’s hard to know when to support them at home and at school, how to teach them tools for self-reliance and what type of support parents need to let them go. Dr. Saline will offer you a theoretical context for addressing emerging adulthood that begins in middle school while sharing useful tools to balance autonomy and connection and identify appropriate accommodations during this extended transition.
Following this training, participants will be able to:
- Create effective strategies and collaborative programs for improving executive functioning skills that increase kids’ participation and promote lasting change.
- Recognize how co-existing disorders and learning disabilities affect and interact with ADHD and executive functioning skills.
- Learn practical treatment interventions for motivating kids with ADHD with less conflict and more cooperation at home and school.
- Identify warning signs of risky behaviors and gain potent tools for managing them.
- Investigate the relationship between ADHD and technology and formulate appropriate programs to help families struggling with screens.
