Intentional Learning: Teaching Students to be Self-directed Learners

Erin Anderson, OTR/L, will explain the how and why of sensory processing and modulation and their relationship to academic learning.

Erin Anderson

Occupational Therapy & Academics: Making the Connection

The way that individuals receive, interpret, filter, and act upon sensory information determines the impact on learning.

From difficulty with tactile sensitivity, postural challenges and fine motor skills to attention management—sensory processing and sensory modulation affect the ability of students to learn and demonstrate their learning. Occupational therapists specialize in helping children with challenges in these areas.

Erin Anderson, OTR/L, will explain the how and why of sensory processing and modulation and their relationship to academic learning.

A lively presenter, Erin provides practical, hands-on strategies that can assist students in the educational therapy setting, the classroom, and at home.

In this presentation Ross Greene, PhD will describe this powerful model for solving problems collaboratively. Particularly effective in schools, at home, and in educational therapy practice with oppositional, resistant, anxious, or acting out children, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) focuses on learning what may be interfering and creating an undesirable behavior and then working together to find solutions.

Ross Greene, PhD

Kids Do Well If They Can: Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS)

Understanding and Helping Kids with Behavioral Challenges

CPS focuses on:

  • Solving problems rather than on modifying behavior,
  • Collaborative rather than unilateral solutions,
  • Proactive rather than reactive intervention,
  • Avoiding diagnostic categories, and
  • Providing practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention.

Dr. Ross Greene, author of Lost at School, The Explosive Child, and Raising Human Beings, created a highly acclaimed, dynamic new way of viewing and addressing challenging behavior. In this webinar he will describe this powerful model for solving problems collaboratively. Particularly effective in schools, at home, and in educational therapy practice with oppositional, resistant, anxious, or acting out children, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) focuses on learning what may be interfering and creating an undesirable behavior and then working together to find solutions. This approach reinforces and builds the child’s relationship and trust with the educational therapist, teacher, or parent. Dr. Greene will explain how the process works and how to implement it.

NEW! A free online pre-webinar discussion of Dr. Greene’s book, Lost At School, facilitated by Laura Doto, MA, ET/P, May 4th at 8 am Pacific. Look for a link to this interactive meeting in your registration confirmation email. Participation will be limited, so register early for the webinar to get the link. We will be discussing the introduction and chapters 1, 2, 8, and 9.

Learning outcomes
Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the six key themes of the CPS model
  • Identify and assess the various cognitive skills that are central to adaptively handling life’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges
  • Identify and prioritize unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior
  • List the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each
  • Describe the “ingredients” of Plan B and how to effectively implement them to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior

Ross W. Greene, PhD is the originator of the innovative, research-based model of intervention now known as Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS). Dr. Greene served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now on the faculty of the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and on the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia. He is also the Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org), which aims to disseminate the CPS model through no-cost web-based programming; advocate on behalf of behaviorally challenging kids and their parents, teachers, and other caregivers, and encourages the use of non-punitive, non-adversarial interventions. His research has been funded by the Stanley Research Institute, the National Institutes of Mental Health, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Maine Juvenile Justice Advisory Group. He lectures and consults extensively to families, general and special education schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world.

Dr. Greene is the author of: The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings.

In this presentation Sheryl Pruitt explains Theory of Mind and provides a sampling of cases, resources and strategies that can be used for improving these critical life skills.

Teaching Theory of Mind--Not Just for Autism Spectrum Discorder

Theory of Mind, the ability to recognize and understand your own perspective and the perspective of others, is often associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. It is a skill that is frequently taken for granted in individuals who are not on the spectrum; however, people not on the spectrum can have challenges with Theory of Mind. Such challenges can have a huge impact on the way children, adolescents, and adults develop relationships with others and even their ability to get and maintain a job. Theory of Mind also affects how we think about ourselves, because our own personas are shaped by how we feel others see us. In this webinar, you will gain a broader understanding of this construct as Ms. Pruitt explains Theory of Mind and provides a sampling of cases, resources and strategies that can be used for improving these critical life skills.

Attendees will be able to:
  • Define Theory of Mind
  • Describe the impact of Theory of Mind on interpersonal relationships and future employment
  • Demonstrate how to approach teaching Theory of Mind
  • List important resources for teaching Theory of Mind
