Neither scientists nor educators are ready to prescribe MRI informed practices for improving learning in individual children. However, new research does demand that we take seriously how this new knowledge of the developing brain can better inform and influence practice, and ultimately the development and learning of all children; especially those facing adversity.
This webinar training will review the latest and best research on brain development, and consider how new findings are bringing us back to old school methods.

When children experience trauma during the early years, it can change the trajectory of development, impact normative behaviors, and present an additional layer of complexity to individualizing practices and methods. In this workshop we will unpack how trauma impacts brain development to help us understand the meaning behind behaviors and develop strategies and practices that grow resiliency and mitigate the impact of toxic stress. Specifically, strategies such as building protective factors, strong relationships, social and emotional skills, and implementing whole school supports will be reviewed as a way to help children with a trauma history best learn and grow, as well as to support the healthy development of all children.

Helping children develop relationships and self-regulation skills starts with you knowing your children, having realistic expectations, and creating positive learning and growing environments at school and home. Specific strategies that work well with each age correlate with developmental growth, as well as consideration for temperament, specific behaviors and personality. When challenging behaviors occur, your understanding of growth patterns and the developmental stage of the child enables you to redirect, refocus, or minimally deescalate situations. Having this knowledge enables all those who care for young children to be proactive, and plan effectively for the best learning environment.

Implementing social emotional learning into the classroom can be challenging, especially with the variety of developmental ages and curricular expectations involved. However, we now know more than ever the value appropriate experiences and interactions have on the developing child and their developing brain. Insight into best leadership practices provides a framework for ongoing learning and improvements, as well as creating a culture that models social emotional learning, and leads to effective change in programs.
