Students can become overwhelmed and shut down before trying to work through a challenge. Whereas, many students can easily apply the skills necessary to be successful academically, behaviorally and social-emotionally others have difficulty. When students are unable to engage in strategic learning, they risk believing that assignments and social situations are too challenging to attempt or to overcome. Their perception can influence their belief system to the degree that it becomes their reality. Student performance and self-concept benefits from identifying that they can manage their own perceptions to improve their academic, behavioral and social-emotional skills. Learn how to gain the positive attention from your students when they are feeling defeated. In this workshop participants will:
• Understand perception as a cognitive skill
• Analyze how perception relates to learning
• Learn to manage the different perceptions of students
• Discover strategies to explicitly teach perception Suggest Audience: Educators, Social Workers, Psychologists, Guidance Counselors Links to the online session will be shared via email to registrants two days before the event.

ADHD is considered to be a neurodevelopmental disorder, often referred to as a performance disorder, that impacts approximately 6.1 million children ages 4-17 (CDC.gov). Many students with ADHD have struggled with distance and in person learning as they have difficulty staying focused on a task, paying attention and controlling their impulses. The condition is pervasive and affects all areas of development including academic, behavioral, and social-emotional growth. Poor performance on tasks can be misinterpreted as a lack of motivation when in reality, ADHD physiologically prevents students from performing and reaching goals.

Praise is a well-researched, specific strategy that supports positive student learning. With so many students struggling to keep up with the new demands of distance learning and the expectations of the classroom, many struggle to maintain a healthy and confident self-concept.

Understand the power of praise and the impact it has on student performance, self-worth and overall self-concept.
• Understand the power of praise and the impact it has on student performance
• Learn to praise effort to avoid praising ability
• Differentiate between non behavior specific praise and behavior specific praise
• Practice praising effort and behavior specific praise to prepare for future instruction
