About this Event
We will cover how teachers can collaborate with Mentors and Coaches to better support their students in creating a neurodiversity friendly classroom. This workshop is part of a larger year-long program for schools and teachers that want to support neurodiversity in the classroom. In honor of Brain Awareness Week, we are opening up to include more participants for this specific webinar.
Please reach out to us if you are looking for specific themes, such as Understanding the Role of Executive Functions, Designing Strengths-Based Classrooms, or Social- Emotional and Ethical Learning. We can look into offering an exploratory session to your school or team if you are interested in becoming a more neurodiversity friendly school or teacher.
