The Brain and Adversity: How Leaders Can use Applied Educational Neuroscience to Address the Needs of Emotionally and Behaviorally Challenged Students  
The brain, behavior, stress, engagement and learning are intimately connected! Come learn about a framework that integrates applied educational neuroscience research and strategies to better reach all children and adolescents challenged with emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and social needs. Both educators and students can apply the research and strategies in their own lives building hope, resiliency and positive emotion. Engage in answers to these questions:
  1. How does brain development affect the teaching and learning process?  Further, how do STRESS/Adversity impact the brain and learning and how do we work to mitigate those impacts to help students?
  2. How do we consider behavior through a brain lens?  All behavior is communication.  How do we change our brain state to stay connected to students during behavioral conflicts?  How do we respond to help them learn to respond and self-regulate during times of agitation, anxiety and stress or other conflicts?
  3. How do we use neuroscience research to improve learners’ engagement with their own learning?
