This workshop examines the communication, learning, and behavioral challenges faced by children with processing differences (High Functioning Autism, ADHD, and learning differences, etc.). Neuro-diverse children often have difficulties learning, socializing, and maintaining self-regulation for reasons they can’t control – their brain wiring. This traditional linear and predominantly language-based education or social coaching may confuse and overwhelm the child who processes differently. This can cause behavior such as shutting down, withdrawal, avoidance, arguing, or anger. This presentation explores ways that visual and non-verbal communication may be an effective antidote to emotional and performance difficulties experienced by this population. Attendees will learn an innovative, actionable, and repeatable visual communication technique.
