Neurodevelopmental Delays In Children - Why, What to Watch For and How to Help!
Date: October 5, 2021
Time: 9:00AM PT / 10:00AM MT / 11:00AM CT / 12:00PM ET
What To Expect
Learn about 'the why' behind the rates of learning and behavioral disorders we are seeing in children today;
The role of epigenetics on the outcomes of the health of our children;
Neuroplasticity and how it helps our children continue to grow, improve and learn;
At-home strategies to help children who are struggling;
How BrainAhead can be used as a tool to help children struggling with learning disabilities.
In this presentation, Laura Dieleman, DC, BSc will discuss current theories of why we are seeing the rates of learning and behavioral disorders that we are in children. She will touch on reasons that occur as early as preconception to reasons that occur later in development.
Neuroplasticity will then be explained as the malleability of the brain that gives us hope for being able to create positive changes in our children. Basic anatomy of the brain will be reviewed to help create further understanding of what is likely happening in the brain of a child with a neurodevelopmental delay.
The topic of ADD/ADHD will be discussed as it is one of the most commonly seen diagnoses in children. Lastly, strategies that can be applied at home or in school to help create changes in the brain will be reviewed and resources for further learning on this topic will be given.

October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month
"The Learning Disabilities Association of Canada is a national, non-profit organization that works with and supports the provincial and territorial associations as the national voice for persons with learning disabilities and those who support them."
Support students with learning disabilities by implementing the BrainAhead program!
BrainAhead works to target the activation and augment functioning of whole brain networks using specific sound, movement, breathing, and guided thinking. We know the better the brain can communicate within itself, the better one’s overall functioning.
It's easy to sign up for a free 30-day trial and access all of our brain-activating resources, including:
Video Series: Play a ten minute brain-activating video every day to rev up your students’ bodies & minds and get them ready to learn, both in-class and remotely!
Lesson Plans: Integrate brain activation activities within your Physical Education or Science class to help to create a neurology-based curriculum approach.
Student Resources: Enhance learning gains by integrating BrainAhead into school culture, discussions and activities that align with assessments, reflections, activities and classroom posters.
Educator Resources: Everything else you need to feel supported in the classroom is located here, including an email to parents, information on each Video Series and a trauma-informed toolkit.
