Program Description, Agenda and Goals
The program will be based on Dr. Levine’s work as Director of the
In this special day-long seminar, teachers and child-development professionals will
learn about principles, knowledge and tools that translate complex research on the
brain and how students learn into a practical system that can be used within the
context and resources of mainstream classrooms, clinics and homes.
Using new research, Dr. Levine will offer a practical model for learning that takes into account a wide spectrum of abilities. Topics, including developing control over attention, acquiring motor mastery, and producing and communicating ideas, will present neurodevelopmental constructs and describe how they interact differently in each individual brain to present a “learning profile”.
Educators and child-development professionals who work with children and young adults who have learning, developmental and/or behavioral problems will gain knowledge of scientifically-supported solutions to individual learning challenges. Participants will find out how brain functions affect learning, will be able to identify learning differences without applying labels, and will approach the process of addressing children’s individual challenges with optimism and understanding.
