Autonomic Nervous System through the Poly-Vagal Theory

When we have a better understanding of the innate, automatic wiring of our nervous system, we are better able to understand some of the behaviors elicited by our students. With understanding, comes compassion and the ability to apply connection opposed to commands and punitive management systems.

Download "How are you feeling today?"

How are you feeling today? Build emotional vocabulary and awareness with words and pictures to describe the felt sense that is being experienced. When students are encouraged to explore how they feel and share their true emotions, researchers has shown that behavioral issues decrease. Perhaps this is because when we are aware of how our students are feeling, we are more prepared to help them through those challenging emotions opposed to those emotions brewing and stewing within them, ultimately causing disruptive behaviors.

Download "Neurodiversity​"

Neurodiversity is a range of differences within brain function and behavior.

It demonstrates the abundant variations of being human. As we discover and explore more of the gifts of diversity, we empower our students to be who they are. This gives them a sense of BELONGING.

Too often educational programs focus on how to make our neurodiverse students simply FIT IN when we focus on all of the challenges they face in the general and special education classroom.

Download "The Behavior Iceberg"

Before we instill punishment and rewards systems to “control” behavior, let’s consider the root of the behavior. If we can tend and mend at the level of the root, we can often shift the behavior and create lasting change.

Our common behavioral management policies and procedures typically cause disconnection. When we care for and understand the bottom of the iceberg, we become worried for connection and THAT is where healing truly happens.
