In this interactive course, Lynne Kenney, Psy,D., pediatric psychologist, author and international educator, will show you how to integrate the newest research in neuroscience, kinesiology and neurocognitive education for students to behave better and learn more efficiently.
You will experience 50 developmentally progressive cognitive-exercises and coaching activities to enliven your classroom, office and clinic. Learn how to improve cognition, enhance learning and empower children to be better thinkers with motor movement, sequencing, attending, selfregulation and memory activities.
Dress comfortably, as we will be integrating movement throughout the day.
