Description

This seminar 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.

Join 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.

In 3 short live sessions totaling 6 hours and 15 minutes, Dr. Ehlert will teach you hands-on activities, exercises, and techniques you can use whether you are teaching in a classroom or virtually. Her go-to interventions will help you:

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

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

*Please note: This live program is 6 hours and 15 minutes in total. It will be presented across three dates to provide easily consumable, 2+ hour sessions. To receive full credit, attendance is mandatory on all three dates.

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.
