Creating “I CAN!” Kids: Fostering Resilience in Young Children with Disabilities and At-Risk Factors

Learning Level 2: Intermediate/Application

Intended Audience – Administrators, ECSE/General Educators, Paraeducators, Family Members, Family Educators, Psychologists, Social Workers, SLPs, OT/PTs

Description – Often defined as the ability to bounce back from life’s challenges, resilience is a protective factor for mental health. Unfortunately, having a disability or being exposed to adverse experiences puts children at risk for mood disorders, negative social interactions, and decreased resiliency. But all is not lost! Join us to discover what we can and must do to foster resiliency in young children with disabilities and those who are at risk. Come away with an understanding of the key resiliency-building factors and strategies to implement each of them, so you can make a powerfully positive difference in the lives of your students.

There will be a one-hour lunch break beginning around 11:45am.
