Facilitated by Laura Ehlert, PsyD., PESI Consultant

This seminar will help you to better intervene with the challenging child-the one who won't sit still; doesn't follow directions; often throws tantrums; or has difficulty waiting for their turn. They may "hit first and ask questions later". They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn't reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home.

Join clinical psychologist Dr. Ehlert and learn to effectively intervene with the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders. Through hands-on activities and dynamic discussion, you will learn techniques, behavioral strategies, problem-solving strategies and brain training exercises to:
- Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them
- Increase their self-control, social success, emotional control and task completion
- Teach flexibility, tolerance, thinking it through and decision-making
- Reduce the frequency and duration of their tantrums and emotional outbursts

Walk away with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to social and academic success!

Required Text: All Students Must Thrive: Transforming Schools to Combat Toxic Stressors and Cultivate Critical Wellness ISBN-13 : 978-1328027047

Description:This course is designed to provide the school leader with the understanding that a school culture of equity is one where educators create a classroom, school, and system where excellence is achieved for every student, no matter who that student is or where that student comes from.

The major ideas of the course are:
- In a school culture of equity, diversity becomes the norm, not the exception, and excellence becomes the norm for all, not the exception for a few.
- No matter how different and diverse the individual's background and characteristics might be, the equitable school culture embraces the uniqueness, strengths, and challenges of the student and provides equitable support, understanding, expectations, and encouragement to succeed.
- Equity can only occur in a culture where it is safe for adults and students alike to take risks, stretch, learn, and authentically engage day in, day out. In a school where this is possible, faculty hold themselves to the highest expectations and professional responsibility, while doing what is necessary to understand themselves and their students racially and culturally.

Meeting Times: Wednesday, February 22, 2023, 8:30am to 3:00pm

Location: Zoom

Virtual Workshop
Facilitated by Terri A. Erbacher, Ph.D.

Pennsylvania Act 18 requires all school entities to have threat assessment teams. Threat assessment requires both the assessment of - and intervention with - students who may present as a threat to others. Thus, threat assessment must be an integral part of a system that fosters a safe, supportive, and effective school environment, characterized by trust between students and adults, respect for others, parent involvement, and collaboration between school and community. Pennsylvania requires that threat assessment procedures be in place that are fair and ensure equitable practices.

This full-day virtual training will provide school-based teams a valuable opportunity to:
- learn how to identify students at risk for a variety of mental health problems
- assess various levels of threats
- plan for safety when needed and return students to appropriate learning environments.

Participation in this program will help participants:
1. Understand the rationale for school-based threat assessment
2. Develop procedures for their own districts and schools to assess threats of violence according to Pennsylvania Act 18 requirements
3. Implement research-based practices related to assessment and intervention of youth at risk for violence
4. Consider practical issues in the development of school threat assessment teams

LEAs are invited to register a team of three per school. Each team shall include individuals with expertise in - School health
- Counseling, school psychology, or social work
- Special education
- School administration
- The school safety and security coordinator appointed under section 1309-B

Cancellation/No Show Policy: Full fee if dropped after 2/15/2023 or no show day of the event.
