Where SEN meets mental health challenges

MH1Recently I was asked to talk to some Hertfordshire teachers and Sencos about this topic, that was very well received. I summarised the content it in just 30 minutes in my on-line monthly webinar for Dyslexia, ADHD and neurodivergent questions.

The topics covered were:

  1. How SEN can develop into mental health challenges.
  2. The role of mental imagery in learning
  3. Some of the mysteries, contradictions and strengths of neurodiversity
  4. The connections with mental health
  5. The simple skills you and your child can learn.

Here is the link, for the recording:  https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/recording/3595103259003792391

To do a bit of pre-reading take a look at my recent book,  The Elephants in the Classroom.

This webinar is completely FREE but if you want to contribute to our fundraiser to supply complimentary copies of the Elephants in the Classroom to every primary school, in the UK, there is a link in the left-hand column of www.tiahl.org.

When I published The Elephants in the Classroom, there was always going to be room for more elephants to pop up.  It seems that mouth breathing so stresses your body, it is behind much of the anxiety and need for grounding mentioned in  “The Elephants in the Classroom: uncovering every student’s natural power of mental imagery to enhance learning“. To find out more, order your own copy here, or more than 10 copies here or on  Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
