This workshop is two days: November 30th and December 1st, 2019

Description

Children are remarkable, complex, and sometimes challenging. The way we plan for them and react to their diverse needs can mean the difference between constant power struggles and smooth sailing. In this workshop, we will learn how to build consistent relationships with every child in your classroom. We will think about voice, energy, function of behavior, explicit strategies, and evidence-based programs.

Join us to develop your inclusive skills and realize the joy that is possible when we invest in our unique learners.

Open to educators and the wider community (ages 16+)


About the Facilitator, Erin Madonna

Currently, Erin is the Learning Support Specialist at Shekou International School in Shenzhen, China. Before moving to work internationally, she spent a decade teaching students with diverse needs in the small, but feisty, state of Delaware, USA. While a generalist in practice, Erin finds great joy in working with students who have emotional and behavioral needs as well as those with sensory integration needs. She utilizes many different pedagogical approaches and programs (multi-sensory, differentiation, Applied Behavior Analysis, Reading Horizons/Orton-Gillingham, mindfulness, TEACCH, PECS, social stories, Response to Intervention, Whole Brain, Responsive Classroom, Kagan Structures, Learning Focused, etc), blending the best parts of each to meet the unique needs of all learners. She is passionate about supporting students who benefit from a non-traditional approach to education and the teachers and families who guide their growth.
