How brains uniquely develop impacts learning, social-emotional well-being and relationships. Understanding neurodiversity is essential for educators to create a positive learning climate for all students. Special educators will gain new strategies that best “prime” every brain for engagement, keep the stress response in check, and keep executive functions active and awake. Educators’ brains are part of the equation, too, because the teaching process is part of a living system where relationships open doors to higher level cognition and well-being. Attendees will gain valuable insight for rethinking behavior management more as behavior engagement by modeling a mindset that promotes equity and a mutual respect.
