Presenter: Dr. Sarah Allen
Designing interventions in a classroom can be tricky. A whole-child centered approach is needed to improve children’s functioning, build skills, and develop strategies to promote learning and independence. This lecture will review the essential systems for learning including cognitive, executive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of students’ functioning. Participants will also learn how to approach designing interventions as well as understand specific strategies that work in classrooms.
