This course covers understanding what trauma is, how it is different to adverse childhood experiences, and how prevalent trauma is. It looks at how trauma changes the brain and how this affects the mind and body, mood and behaviour. The course has dedicated lessons on understanding classroom behaviour and managing classroom behaviour. It provides detail for a trauma sensitive classroom and some insights into the trauma sensitive school.
Educators are familiar with conditioning based disciplinary policies. However, some children simply do not respond to this type of discipline. Yes, they know the rules but they will not follow them, no matter what the consequences are and no matter how many times you have told them. This course explains this type of behaviour together with many other confusing presentations that educators see in the classroom.

Study after study shows that kids who get regular physical activity, even just a minute or two, experience improvements not just in their fitness levels, but in brain function, too. In addition, we have seen great improvement in classroom management issues, increasing the enjoyment and productivity of your teaching time!
Some kids are wrigglers and some are mind-wanderers, while some are able to stay focused in long periods. These Brain & Body Boosters are exercises that can calm and clear the mind, relieve tension and stress and increase concentration, focus and attention span. No matter who you’re teaching, all your students can benefit from a short physical break during the day without losing too much valuable teaching time.
These homework tasks use the principle of crossing the midline to aid in developing visual-spatial perception, coordination and fine motor skills. They are especially useful for young children or older children with dyspraxia.
They have also been proven to be a useful tool for calming and wellbeing, and have been designed to be used by children who struggle with anxiety and related issues. Once these paper based tasks are mastered, children can draw midline eights in the air and gain the same brain benefits.
