Description

This digital seminar is currently on pre-order meaning that the video will not be ready until 2-3 weeks after the program has taken place.

This recording will help you to better intervene with the challenging student—the one who won’t sit still; doesn’t follow directions; often throws tantrums; or has difficulty waiting for their turn. They may “hit first and ask questions later”. They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. This child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their challenging behavior is overwhelming, confusing and frustrating. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home.

Watch child clinical psychologist Dr. Ehlert and learn to effectively intervene with the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities and sensory processing disorders. Through hands-on activities, exercises and techniques, you will learn classroom interventions to:

  • Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them
  • Improve problem-solving skills and self-regulation skills
  • Increase their self-control, social success, emotional control and task completion
  • Teach flexibility, tolerance, thinking it through and decision-making
  • Reduce the frequency and duration of their tantrums and emotional outbursts

Walk away with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to social and academic success!
