Helping Neurodivergent Learners Thrive this Holiday Season
November 3 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm PDT
Learn simple strategies to help your child cope with anxiety, depression, and sensory sensitivities often brought on by the holiday season.
Neurodivergent learners and their caregivers often face immense and overwhelming feelings throughout the holiday season. From anxiety and depression to sensory sensitivities, learners need and deserve support systems that will reinforce coping strategies in areas such as self-regulation and a growth mindset, especially during the holiday rush. In this webinar, our panelists will provide insight into the types of social, emotional and cognitive challenges our learner community may experience and simple strategies that caregivers and educators can utilize in order for everyone to not just survive the holidays, but thrive!
The webinar will consist of a 30-minute panelist discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
