JW3 Centre, Finchley Rd, London NW3 6ET, UK
About The Event
A talk by Rachel Langford for parents, teachers and caregivers
Have you ever wondered:
• Why is it that I need to say everything several times before my child responds?
• Why does my child respond in an explosive and/or aggressive way?
• Why is my child struggling socially?
• Why does my child find it hard to deal with frustration?
• WHAT TECHNIQUES CAN BE USED TO HELP THEIR BRAIN DEAL BETTER WITH THE ABOVE?
Previous studies using brain imaging techniques have demonstrated that there may be specific brain functions and patterns that are characteristic to such behaviours. We will get familiar with those aspects and most importantly - with what can be done about it, in the school and home setting. We will present tools and the science behind them, that can help the brain reduce hyperactivity, improve emotional dysregulation, and improve cognitive functions.
Other topics that will be covered:
- The brain of a child with ADHD, ADD, ODD
- Do and Don’t-do for parents and teachers
- Breathing patterns in hyperactive and emotionally dysregulated children and how they affect brain performance.
Understanding the child’s brain can help parents and teachers guide, help and encourage the child. By learning about how to regulate the brain activity, you will be able to give your child the tools to understand their brain, and most importantly – to choose to train and help it get to a more balanced state.
