90-minute keynote and Q&A with Dr. Tracey Marks, MD


Title: From Anxiety to Resilience: Building Emotional Toolkits for Kids and Their Support System


Description:

Do you feel like your child's anxiety is becoming too much to handle? Or are you an educator or therapist searching for effective techniques to help anxious children? This talk has been created to provide both children and their adult caretakers (parents, educators, and therapists) with a set of emotional tools to manage anxiety and develop resilience.


Leave with:

  • Actionable strategies to empower anxious children and their champions.
  • Confidence to create a calmer and more resilient future for the children in your life.
  • Resources for further learning and support.

Let's equip ourselves and our children with the necessary tools to thrive and not just survive.


90-minute talk and  Q&A with Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP

  • Title: Tips for Teaching Executive Functioning and Self-Reflection: Building Awareness of “What to do” and “How I’m Doing Over Time.”
  • Description: Social and organizational competencies rely on solid to strong executive functioning. In this talk we’ll explore a practical definition of executive functioning and ways to support teaching these concepts. We’ll share some tips and/or strategies that we have found to help students/clients get things done they don’t want to do. This short talk will touch upon fostering social curiosity, promoting organizational know-how, encouraging social problem solving, rallying one’s motivation, building metacognitive awareness, and teaching self-reflection of one’s own success. We teach these concepts through the lens of a new graphic novel for teens and a story-based visual teaching tool.

Who Should Attend

The Social Thinking Methodology is used by a wide variety of professionals, including speech-language pathologists, special and general education teachers, social workers, counselors, clinical and school psychologists, occupational therapists, behavior specialists, and school administrators to name a few. It’s also used by family members and caregivers across settings.
