About The Event
A talk by Rachel Langford MSc. Med, MBPsS 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 aggressive way?
- Why does my child still wet the bed?
- 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 published studies using different techniques of brain imaging have demonstrated that there may be some differences between the brains of people with and without these conditions. We will get familiar with those differences and most importantly - 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.Topics that will be covered:
- The brain of a child with ADHD, ADD, ODD
- Do and Don’t-do for parents and teachers of ADHD children
- Sleep patterns, brain activity and sleep habits in ADD/ADHD
- 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 tools to regulate the brain activity, you will be able to give him/her the tools to understand their brain, and most importantly – to take control over their brain activity and train it to become more focused and concentrated.
