Managing Stress for Children with SLDs

SPELD Victoria are running a workshop for parents, carers and educators on Managing Stress for Children with SLDs

This workshop is designed for students with SLDs, their parents, teachers and allied health professionals.

School can be stressful for anyone, but for children with SLDs the stress of school and learning can be overwhelming. Parents see the emotional fallout of their child’s stress and bear witness to the after-school meltdown, tears at drop off, angry outbursts over homework, and the sad and withdrawn teen. Parents often worry most about the impact of their child’s SLD on their self esteem and are desperate for ways to help their child build resilience and learn adaptive ways to cope and respond to stress. 

This is Part 2 in a series of workshops on stress and SLDs.

In Part 1 topics covered included research into stress and resilience in young people with SLDs and practical strategies to support children and teens.

In Part 2 we will dive deeper into the brain’ s stress response system and explore the Self Reg® method for recognising and responding to stressors, both hidden and overt, in children and teens with SLDs.

Part 1 is NOT a prerequisite to Part 2.

This webinar will be held on Thurs 24th Nov, 2022 6:30pm – 9:00 pm.
