Teaching to Every Kid – Unmasking II
February 16, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Unmasking II: Getting to the Root of Behaviors Guided by the Executive Functions
Free virtual workshop open to all Early Childhood Educators in New Mexico
In Dr. K’s previous workshop series, you learned how to befriend distraction and set learning conditions to stabilize and promote safety, readiness, and well-being within your learning community. This workshop series extends that knowledge and focuses on the process of unmasking, which is learning to identify the root of a child’s behavior and performance issues. Dr. K will deepen your knowledge about the executive functions, how and when they develop, ways that they can be altered in certain learning conditions such as dyslexia, attention disorders, or autism spectrum disorder, and how they can be affected by trauma and pandemic stress. She will teach you how to recognize the behaviors of executive function so that you know how and when behavior masks your opportunity to foster learning potential. She will teach you how to unmask threat, stress and anxiety and disrupt those states using analogy, metaphor, and higher-level thinking that can be nested in the play routines of young children.
