About This Workshop

Have you always wanted to improve your child’s ability to follow multiple step instructions, read more fluently, or grasp those tricky math word problems? Have you wondered if there are things you can do as the teacher to improve your child’s progress? The field of neuroscience has given us an immense amount of information on how the brain learns and provides a roadmap of how to teach considering brain function to optimize learning. Take away easy-to-implement actionable steps that are quick and affordable but can make a huge impact in your homeschool classroom.

Participants will learn:
~What neuroplasticity is
~The definition of the 7 core cognitive skills and how these impact learning and teaching
~How to identify cognitive weaknesses in your students
~Classroom activities to support cognitive development
~Treatments and preview of other supports such as movement, priming the nervous system, automaticity, and creating an environment to maximize your teaching tools and strategies
