Why Do My Students Do That:
Practical Applications of Neuroscience in the Classroom

Janine Wiskind

Understanding the "why" behind your students' behaviors can maximize your ability to support them in the school setting, train their teachers and parents, and be more effective in your treatment approach. This session discussed functional neuroanatomy related to the development of the brain, learning and memory, and several diagnoses. Case studies will provide strategies for treatment in the classroom setting.

Participants will be able to:
1. List the stages of neuronal development and how damage at different stages can impact disability
2. Identify the function of the motor systems and their impact on school function
3. Discuss motivational pathways and their effects on attention and behavior

The Role of Related Service Providers in Addressing the National Mandates

Participants will be able to:
1. Identify the health and wellness mandates as they relate to
a. School
