Participants will explore how to support parents in developing the listening skills needed to enhance the self-directedness of their children. While genuine listening is the foundation of all respectful behaviour and generates trust in a relationship, it also requires training and discipline so that the focus remains other-centred. More than simply “telling parents”, participants will review how identity and action are related: “Who do I need to be to listen genuinely to my child?”
What aspects of collaborative teaching models do teaching partners need to consider? In this interactive pre-conference, we will look at a typical teaching cycle that includes: co-planning; co-instructing; co-assessing; and co-reflecting and explore them using many easily transferable teaching strategies. Suitable for all teachers K - 12, whether you’re already co-teaching, or just considering it!
In this pre-conference, participants will connect with professionals who provide direct and indirect therapeutic services. They will gain a deeper understanding of direct/indirect therapy, assessments that can be done by therapeutic support experts and how these therapies can support and enhance the work that teachers do with their students.
Participants will explore the opportunities and challenges that arise within an international school community and ways in which intentionally proactive and responsive approaches can support both students and families. Specific areas that will be addressed will include: Social Thinking, Peer Relationships, Life/Functional Skills, Self esteem, mental health and the impact on a family.
What are the diagnoses that international school educators most frequently come across in their school settings? In this day-long session, participants will explore the high degree of neurodiversity that exists within a student population. They will engage in a deeper understanding of a range of diagnoses such as ADHD; Autism Spectrum Disorder; Cognitive Developmental Disabilities; Functional Multi-Lingualism; Exceptional/Twice Exceptionally Able and will explore some of the most effective ways to support them.
