Studies show that approximately 20 percent of all students are diagnosable for a mental, emotional or behavioral health issue. This seminar will help counselors, teachers and other professionals understand how to support and teach this high-potential portion of the student population while avoiding an unmanageable classroom environment.
In a single classroom, it is quite conceivable that a teacher might be dealing with 4 or 5 different disorders. Some of the most common challenges mainstreamed in the classroom tend to be:

Anger Disorders
Bipolar Disorder
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Anxiety Disorder
Asperger’s Syndrome
Borderline Personality Disorder
Reactive Attachment Disorder

These issues are often undiagnosed and easily misunderstood — and may be responded to as simple discipline issues. Behaviors that tend to be common to students who are wired differently include:

Trouble dealing with change
Performance and testing anxiety
Social anxiety
Over- and under-reacting to adults and peers

The goal of this seminar is to provide you with key insights and approaches to help you prevent disruptions and distractions, while maximizing the abilities of students with these unique challenges.
