Description

This seminar will help you to better intervene with the challenging child—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. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home.

Join 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 and dynamic discussion, you will learn techniques, behavioral strategies, problem-solving strategies and brain training exercises to:

  • Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them
  • 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!

Laura Ehlert Related seminars and products


Laura Ehlert, Psy.D., is a child clinical psychologist who has worked with children and adolescents with severe emotional/behavioral issues for over 30 years.  She maintains a private practice in Burnsville, Minnesota where she specializes in working with clients who struggle with information, executive functioning and sensory processing deficits, and their associated emotional, behavioral and mental health issues.  Dr. Ehlert has worked with thousands of youth in a variety of settings including hospitals, residential treatment centers, partial hospital programs, school day treatment and outpatient mental health settings.  She holds a doctorate degree in clinical psychology where her training focuses on developmental issues of childhood, and child psychopathology issues.

Professionals who have worked with Dr. Ehlert in the past have often commented that the perspectives and interventions she offers succeeded where others have failed. All behavior has function and is goal driven. Therefore, our understanding from the child’s perspective and being able to collaborate with the child to better know what information they do or don’t have in any difficult situation, is vital. If you want to resolve the problem that is creating the difficult behavior, you must first understand what is behind that behavior.

Objectives

  1. Communicate how sensory, language, and executive skills impairments create fight/flight/freeze and defensive responses that lead to dysregulation and related behavioral issues in children.

  3. Employ behavior modification techniques and problem-solving strategies to diffuse students' escalated and oppositional behavior.
  4. Implement environmental strategies to accommodate children’s processing deficits and emotional regulation needs.
  5. Utilize problem-solving strategies to develop appropriate behavioral expectations and coping mechanisms for improved self-regulation skills in students.
  6. Apply cognitive restructuring strategies to reduce frequency, severity and duration of children’s behavioral and emotional outbursts.

Comments

VERONICA C

"I loved the training and the trainer. It was validating to the work i'm doing. "

Rachel F

"Really liked examples of cases and real life experience."

Monica B

"I was very impressed with the content of the course. I can’t wait to share what I learned with my coworkers and put new strategies into place in the classroom."

Kimberly A

"As an online participant it would have been nice to be acknowledged as taking part. As an OT I would recommend this course only for beginner level. The presenter was knowledgeable and presented a wealth of information in a short time span. "

Joanna B

"Presenter was obviously very knowledgeable, but the presentation seemed very disorganized. She brought up great points but then spent way too much time on one idea/example. Had to leave at 4pm and missed last part of presentation. Overall, felt that the time management was poor. Also, much of the course was audience questions (not great for a webinar) and most were inaudible so was hard to follow."

Julie C

"As a OT, I would not recommend this course for OT's with a lot of sensory experience. I think it is a great course for psychologists and educators who aren't familiar with sensory processing."

Hannah K

"Great course! This has been very helpful"
