Over 220 Educators Learn How to Turn Stress into Success
November 14, 2012 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
The Anita Naftaly Family Circle Conference, on Sunday, October 21st, Opening the Doors’ premier community event, was a huge success!
This conference helps raise awareness and insight of the challenges faced by kids with disabilities, and how to empower them to become more successful and involved in our Jewish community. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback for Jerome J. Schultz Ph.D., neuropsychologist and author, spoke to 200 attendees, on the impact of stress on learning for children with LD, ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome and multiple challenges.
Educators, parents, and mental health practitioners came away with positive and relevant strategies to implement, such as the “De-Stress Model “ and ”Saving Fase”, an understanding of the neurobiology of the brain, and that there IS good stress! Following his keynote presentation, Dr. Schultz held a very engaging informal parent session, where he provided supportive and thoughtful ‘next day’ advice to families facing lifelong challenges.
Dr. Schultz is the author of Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with ADHD & LD Hate School and What We Can Do About It.
