Using Neuroscience to Impact Development, Emotional Regulation, and Sensory Processing
Saturday, May 19, 2019, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern
This private event is hosted by The New Hebrew Academy for Special Children (HASC), 1318 60th St, Brooklyn, NY 11219. Registration is handled by the organization and open to HASC staff only.
Neuroscience can impact development, emotional regulation, and sensory processing. While neuroanatomy and neurochemistry are inevitably complex topics, a solid understanding can significantly improve client outcomes by guiding successful intervention.
Through this course, you learn to optimize therapeutic outcomes by harnessing the latest knowledge about neurological differences in the brains of children with ADHD, SPD, and ASD. Other topics include anxiety and behavior disorders. Take home practical strategies to maximize neuroplasticity, enhance neurotransmitter function. In addition, you learn to further physical, academic, sensory, language, and social-emotional development through brain-based intervention. This fast-paced course provides a comprehensive course manual, reference materials, and easily accessible resources to make the implementation of your newly acquired knowledge easy and immediate.
- Identify the major neurological differences associated with common diagnoses.
- Articulate the primary roles of at least five major neurotransmitters.
