Aaron Wiemeier specializes in working with children and teens battling PTSD and anger issues.  He says trauma memory often provides a “template” that helps a person evaluate how to respond in a given situation.  But it can also help educators understand why a student might “go off” in certain situations.  Watch Aaron discuss the brain’s trauma memory mechanism.

He will present a Pre-Conference Session entitled The Fearless Educator: Strategies for Working with the Most Angry, Adversarial & Avoidant Students.  He will also present a breakout session during the Summit.

Dr. Greg Richards says that the neurobiological “alarm system” found in the adult brain to control risk-taking is non-operational in the brains of children and teens.  Watch Dr. Richards explain behavior-related issues of the adolescent prefrontal cortex.

Dr. Richards will present a Pre-Conference Session entitled Practical Applications of Adolescent Brain Research to Improve School Safety and Culture at Innovative Schools Atlanta.  He will also present a breakout session during the main conference.

Mike Paget is an author and expert on working with students who have emotional/behavioral disabilities, and speaks throughout North America on the topic.  He is often asked where to “draw the line” in accommodating these students.  Watch Mike discuss drawing the line on accommodations for students with emotional/behavioral disorders.

Mike will present a Pre-Conference Session entitled 5 Keys for Working with Students with “Acting Out” and “Acting In” Disorders at Innovative Schools Las Vegas, Atlanta & Niagara Falls.  He will also present a breakout session during the main conference.
