Educators need help understanding the social-emotional development of their students, particularly when that development is asynchronous to other abilities due to neurodiversity. Therapists in agencies have individual and group supervisions; teachers need more than a staff room to fully process the variety of feelings of hope and frustration that can build up in their work. I provide professional development on best practices, and I coach educators on how to develop a stance and style that can persist in daily effort with intense children (in other words, avoid burnout).
I have provided the following trainings at a variety of schools and institutions:
- Managing Behavior While Enhancing Social Emotional Learning
- What is Autism?
- Effective Communication to Collaborate with Gifted Children
- Empathy Out of the Box: A Nontraditional Approach to Nonviolent Communication
- Wired Differently: How Nonviolent Communication can increase comfort and connection between the neurologically diverse and typical others
- Giftedness in Underserved Populations
- Collaborative Problem Solving
- Nonviolent Communication and Restorative Justice
- The Twice-Exceptionality of Asperger’s
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a free 15-minute consult. I would love to discuss speaking opportunities and professional development for your team.
