Event description

Description

This one-day intermediate level presentation is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the neurobiological connections of trauma and the impact on learning. Trauma in children has an increasingly well-documented impact on brain development and neurocognition. Current research in neuroscience helps us to see how the body and mind store traumatic experiences. Although not often considered, school can be a chronically stressful or even traumatizing setting for children with a variety of social, emotional and/ or learning problems. Bullying, academic failure, sensory vulnerabilities, and social rejection (to name a few) can all have a profound impact on a child’s neurodevelopment, mental health and availability to learn. Complex Learners often experience trauma, associated with school failure and social emotional disconnects. Educators and clinicians working with children with a history of trauma recognize that many of the same processes are shared with sensory processing difficulties. These presenters will review current neuroscience perspectives of trauma, discuss how those relate to and interface with sensory integrative theory as well as other somatic and cognitive behavioral intervention strategies. Trauma related motor, cognitive and social emotional neuropsychological outcomes and case studies will also be presented. Following individual speakers, an afternoon panel presentation will discuss implications for the classroom.

All conference participants will receive a certificate for 6 contact hours of training. RISHA CEU's also available.
