Executive Function in the Classroom: 30 Cognitive-Motor Activities to Improve Attention, Memory & Self Regulation (Jan 30, 2020)
Jan 30, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Idaho Falls, Idaho
Executive Function in the Classroom: 30 Cognitive-Motor Activities to Improve Attention, Memory & Self Regulation is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 30, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Idaho Falls, Idaho Falls, Idaho, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours / 0.6 CEUs. Target Audience: • Educators • Special Educators • Psychologist • Counselors • Social Workers • Occupational Therapists • Speech-Language Pathologists • Other Helping Professionals Course Description: Teaching students how they think, learn and behave empowers them to play an active role in their own learning. When children with ADHD, anxiety, learning differences, oppositional tendencies and disinterest in school are taught how to be “Cognitive Scientists” coaching their own brains to plan, prioritize, attend and remember, they become more invested in school and motivated to learn. Taking the mystery out of executive functions by showing students how to learn more efficiently while calming their defensive brains leads to better concentration, improved attention, higher academic achievement and competent social-emotional skills. In this workshop, Lynne Kenney, Psy.D., pediatric psychologist, author and international educator, will teach you how to integrate the newest research in neuroscience, kinesiology and education for kids to learn more efficiently. You will discover over 30 developmentally progressive cognitive-exercises, worksheets and activities to enliven your classroom. Learn how to improve cognition, enhance learning and empower children to be better thinkers with motor movement, sequencing, attending, self-regulation and memory activities. Objectives: • Implement research-based activities educators, teachers and school psychologist can use to improve thinking, self-regulation and behavior. • Characterize the relationship between cognition and motor movement. • Explore bringing physical activity back to the classroom with neurocognitive activities. • Practice over 30 activities you can do to help children with ADHD, dyslexia, ODD, sensory processing challenges, dyspraxia, anxiety and behavioral issues. • Evaluate the integration of computer-based cognition skills training and motor movement activities. • Choose how to enhance collaboration and cooperation in your classroom by teaching children applied neuroscience research.

Dyslexia: Building NEW Neuropathways to Master Visual and Auditory Memory, Visual Perceptual Skills, Visual Motor Skill Development & More! is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 09, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Idaho Falls, Idaho Falls, Idaho, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours / 0.6 CEUs / 6.25 hours of continuing education credit.

It’s not just an issue of trying harder or paying attention. You know the stories you hear from your clients – hours of studying just to forget it all on a test the following day, constant lack of ability to understand what they read, difficulty remembering lists or instructions beyond three, the overwhelming frustration of knowing what they want to say or do, but not being able to express it on paper or get the words out, socially withdrawn in attempt to hid their struggles. In this seminar, you will have the opportunity to practice treatment ideas that will incorporate the use of client-centered everyday routines, games, technology, sensory and hands-on approaches to help your client overcome the challenges of life with dyslexia. Upon completion of this program, you will be able to immediately provide treatment to address your client’s: • Visual perceptual skills • Visual motor integration • Auditory and visual memory • Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension • Phonetic awareness and memory • Spelling and handwriting struggles Turn everyday activities into successful treatment! Objectives: • Analyze the 3 types of dyslexia and apply compensatory strategies to each specific type, such as recital, chunking, and mnemonics as they apply to visual and auditory memory. • Determine the executive cognitive functions and treatment methodologies that impact processing speed and reading comprehension. • Choose treatment strategies to address visual perceptual, visual motor integration, auditory and visual memory deficits to increase handwriting legibility, reading comprehension, and ability to follow multi-step directions. • Communicate how to integrate electronic and low tech games into treatment activities to increase reading comprehension, ability to follow multi-step directions for increased academic success. • Identify ICD-10 treatment diagnostic codes and CPT billing codes to properly bill for reimbursement. • Establish 3 strategies to improve client’s ability to recall multi-step instructions and letter sequence for spelling.
