Description

Keynote Presentation: Social Learning Across Time and Communities: A Life Perspective

Speakers: Lone Beyer & Jannik Beyer

It is thought-provoking how intuitively toddlers assess the social world and how quickly they learn and improve their social competencies. But not all students arrive at school ready to meet such high expectations. An explicit social curriculum is important for all learners. For individuals who struggle with social understanding and social learning, it’s of vital importance for academic learning and development. In this session we present a cross-disciplinary intervention project that uses the Social Thinking® Methodology’s mind-set and vocabulary as its cornerstone. We will outline concrete and practical examples of how the program is implemented for individuals from preschool to the elderly.

 

Breakout Sessions

After lunch, choose 2 of 8 breakout sessions to attend!

Day 2 of Conference

Don't miss the debut of our brand new course on EMOTIONS!
Providers Conference

Saturday June 23, 2018

Day 2 of Conference

All Ages

Don't miss the debut of our brand new course on EMOTIONS! In this hands-on, interactive presentation Michelle Garcia Winner will focus on emotional understanding of self as separate from emotional understanding of others, and how this understanding is the undercurrent of all forms of social communication. The presentation will include practical treatment tools to help unpack and teach about the complexity of emotions within the dynamics of self-regulation and social communication.


The day ends with a panel discussion and Q&A on the power of emotions and social communication across the lifespan.

 

Description

Keynote Presentation: EMOTIONS: More Than You Think and All That You Feel

Speaker: Michelle Garcia Winner

 

In this brand-new course, Michelle will examine how emotions are an ever-present undercurrent that influence so much of what we do, including our ability to do group work, social problem solving, relationship building—even impacting our life memories (episodic memories) and fueling our motivation to tackle goals. Discover why negative emotions tend to take center stage and often become barriers to personal and academic achievement—and strategies to break the cycle. Throughout the day, participants will engage in hands-on activities and learn practical treatment tools to help individuals unpack and manage their emotions, express themselves, understand others’ emotions, and strengthen interpersonal social communication. Michelle will be connecting this information to academic standards and 21st century work skills. Attendees will learn a lot about themselves considering this fascinating topic impacts us all!

 

Panel Discussion and Q&A: The Power of Emotions and Social Communication Across the Lifespan

Panelists: Michelle Garcia Winner, Dr. Pamela Crooke, Sarah Ward, Lone & Jannik Beyer

 

Learn about emotions and social communication across the ages from our panel of experts—then ask them your questions!

Description

Keynote Presentation: Practical Ideas for Assisting with Weak Processing Speed and Exploring Core Connections to Executive Functioning

Speaker: Sarah Ward

 

Most students with executive function (EF) impairments show clinically significant weaknesses in processing speed. Processing speed (PS) is how quickly we can perceive information, understand it, formulate and execute a response. PS is different from intelligence. It is possible to be bright, yet process information slowly. PS can limit productivity and EF skills to do things like complete routines, follow instructions, transition between tasks, and keep pace with the flow and process nuance in social conversations. Slow PS can bog students down in the details and they can’t distinguish relevant from minor details and see the big picture. In this session you’ll learn specific methodologies to help your students improve their processing speed and related EF skills.
