About the event

Please join us in the Brubeck Room for SPED*NET's presentation on How School Interventions Affect Your Kids Who are Wired Differently.  Children with autism, NVLD, or ADHD have two things in common: their brains process differently from those of other kids, and they are often traumatized in school. Schools traditionally focus on kids' behavior, instead of on their experiences. This is especially true if their behaviors distract other children. But children who are not accomplishing work “at the level of their potential” or are “oppositional” or “noncompliant” may be doing the best they can. Negative feedback only discourages them and leads to a sense of frustration and shame. Parents often feel helpless when trying to get schools to better understand their kids.  Clinical psychologist Marcia Eckerd, PhD, and therapist Robert Bernstein, MA, will discuss why it’s critical for schools to focus on “what’s the child experiencing” in order to genuinely understand their behavior and help them succeed.  RSVP HERE!
