3 CPD presentations on Neurodiversity for just £25!
Today’s classrooms are filled with challenges. Some children and young people with developmental differences find these challenges just too overwhelming. The danger then, is that they simply disengage, switch off and stop trying. Or resort to disruptive behaviour. But it doesn’t have to be like this…
Behaviour expert Fintan O’Regan wants to help teachers better understand their pupils with developmental differences. In these 3 training sessions, Fintan shares his knowledge to help teachers better support neurodiverse children in their classroom.
Can’t learn, won’t learn, don’t give a monkey’s – and you don’t understand me at all!
Fintan outlines the different rhythms of those that can’t learn but want to (Attention Deficit Disorder), those that push you away (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) and those with a different agenda (Conduct Disorder). He explains how to help those that can’t to can, those that won’t to want to, and those that don’t to do.
Supporting ADHD and behaviour issues in the classroom
Fintan considers how to effectively support pupils with ADHD and overlapping behaviour issues within classroom settings. By examining the core symptoms of Impulsivity, Inattention and Hyperactivity, this session outlines a range of options to meet Learning, Behaviour and Socialisation objectives.
Supporting children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
Fintan explains how to effectively support children and young people who display traits of Oppositional Defiant Disorder. This session aims to demystify ODD traits and mood management. He also highlights possible causes, signs and signals, presentation at different ages, as well as how to diffuse potentially explosive situations.
These Neurodiversity training videos will help you to better understand and improve support for neurodiverse children in your school to ensure the best outcomes.
