The Problem with Behavior Problems:  Supporting Students with Autism & Other Disabilities
Come and explore fresh ways to think about "behavior problems" in inclusive schools.  We will examine where problems come from, who "owns" them, and how our language and approaches can both create behavior struggles and minimize them.  We will discuss how educators can avoid challenging moments by listening, teaching, collaborating, including and thinking out of the box.  Specific strategies that will be highlighted include video modeling, building on strengths, and encouraging movement.

Joyful Learning:  Using Active & Collaborative Structures to Differentiate Instruction
Too often a "one-size-fits-all" approach is used to design lessons leaving some learners struggling to participate and leaving teachers feeling they have not reached all of their students.  In this interactive session, participants will apply principles of differentiation by exploring a number of collaborative, active, and brain-compatible learning techniques aimed at engaging students and making learning joyful.  The session is appropriate for teachers in K-12 classrooms and is structured for participants to experience these active techniques through demonstration.
