The Importance of Sensory and Emotional Regulation When Looking at Behaviours

About this Event
Do you ever wonder about those ‘behaviours’ that happen right out of the blue? They may not be so mysterious after all. Everyday we take information in from the world around us through our sensory systems: hearing, sight, smell, touch and our perceptions of motion, movement and gravity. How we process this information determines how we feel and respond to our social situations. Sensory and emotional regulation is the foundation for cognitive, communicative and other social skills! Come and learn about how to help our children learn to regulate and see if that helps some of those ‘challenging’ behaviours! This will be an interactive session with some opportunities to experience what some of our children experience in their bodies.

Pam is the very proud parent of two very different thinking young adult sons! She is also a Positive Behaviour Support Consultant/Parent Trainer for Reach Child & Youth Development Society. She is a recognized educational speaker for families and teaching staff of exceptional children and she is a co-founder of the Richmond Autism Interagency Committee – a group dedicated to increasing opportunities for people with autism to be accepted and celebrated in their communities.

Promoting and Supporting the Social and Emotional Development of Infants and Toddlers

Living with ADHD: From Surviving to Thrivingpresented by Ted Leavitt from Langley Youth and Family Services

The purpose of the workshop is to educate people as to what is going on in the ADHD brain, not just a list of symptoms but the "why" behind those symptoms. Understanding the "why" can help to reduce frustration for everyone, both those with ADHD and those without.

Equal parts science, philosophy, and practicality, there's something for everyone.

Ted Leavitt, M.Sc., Registered Clinical Counsellor, Specialist in ADHD, aggressive behaviour, anxiety, attachment trauma. Works in private practice in Abbotsford BC and also as a Program Manager at Langley Youth and Family Services. Diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, Ted is also the father of five wonderfully complex children, all with ADHD as well.

Risk-taking in Play : It’s Too Dangerous Not To! presented by Sophie Cooper developer of “Play-work Principles into Practice”

Given the opportunity children will test their boundaries and limits when they play: they will take risks. However due to an increasingly risk-averse society some say risky play is becoming an endangered human behaviour! This workshop explores a child's need to engage in self-directed free play and the role of risk-taking in play for a child's healthy development. Participants will reflect on their own personal and professional comfort levels when it comes to children taking risks. Using risk-benefit assessments, participants will identify where and how children in their care can test their physical and emotional limits, retaining a thrilling impression of dangerous possibility for those children wishing to seek it out, while reducing the likelihood and severity of harm.

Sophie Cooper has over 20 years’ experience in child-directed free play and in play-work training for adults, starting out as a play ranger supporting inclusive play provision in South Wales. She went on to co-develop and deliver an international first: a ground-breaking play-work development course for Play Wales: ‘Play-work Principles into Practice’. Sophie is a qualified play-worker and play-work trainer, with a Forest School Level 1, a Masters’ Degree in Community Education and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Youth and Community Work. She currently lives in North Vancouver with her husband and 6-year old son and works building capacity for rights respecting, participatory and playful ways of working with children and youth.
