Dr. Sandy Gluckman Presents a Bold New Model of Teaching for Educators

Truly astonishing recent discoveries about the brain makes this an incredible time to be a teacher. We now know that, no matter what challenges a child may have, when teachers use classroom tools based on neuroscience, they can literally heal and stretch the child’s brain. This means that no child need ever remain stuck with, or be held back by learning or behavior challenges. Every child is capable of stepping into their own unique greatness when taught by teachers who know how to teach in ways that heal the brain.

Dr. Sandy Gluckman’s Teaching that Heals The Brain approach shows teachers how to teach and heal at the same time. This unique combination of teaching with healing, takes special education to a whole new level.

“When a teacher blends education and neuroscience, this changes the child’s life, the teacher’s life and the world at large is a better place for it.”

Dr Sandy’s programs are For educators at all levels of education. The information and tools are applicable for early education through to high school, for special needs, neurotypical and gifted children.

#1: How to Use Neuroplasticity to Heal the Brain and Teach Effectively

We are living in a uniquely historical time, where due to the discovery of neuroplasticity teachers can now actually shape today’s young brains and prepare them to live extraordinary lives.

Neuroplasticity is the most exciting and important discovery of the last decade. This neuroscientific discovery is in the process of rewriting outdated information about the brain, and about education and is telling a story that is much more encouraging and inspiring than we ever thought possible .

What is Neuroplasticity – How and why it is transforming education. – Practical ways to use neuroplasticity in any classroom with any curriculum and all kids. – How to use the quick and easy, powerful tools of neuroplasticity to help students improve attention, learn more easily, control emotions and enhance self-esteem. – How neuroplasticity will change your life and the life of your students.

#2: How to Teach Using both Left Brain and Right Brain

Half-brained teaching delivers half-brained results. When we use the whole brain to teach, learn and communicate, we see the world in a whole new way. This can impact the way we feel about ourselves and the decisions we make in life.

Each teacher and each student has a preferred thinking style, dictated by the way their brain naturally likes to think. This is because our brain consists of two sides. When we use our preferred side more often than the other side, this creates shortcomings in our teaching style and impacts the results the students can achieve.

Teachers discover their own brain preference. They understand how their brain preference impacts their teaching style How to recognize the brain preference of each student. How to use the brain preference of each student to communicate with, and teach them effectively How to avoid ‘half-brained’ teaching. Teaching tools using both sides of the brain. How to integrate the left and right brain in lesson plans.

#3: Preventing Suicide and Homicide, How to Recognize the Signs and What to Do

No child needs to reach the point of such desperation that they hurt themselves or hurt others.  The information and tools you will learn in this workshop will empower you, as an educator or parent, with the ability not only save lives, but also to change the entire trajectory of a child’s future.

Long before anyone actually commits suicide or homicide, there are clearly visible red flags that this danger exists. With the already high – and ever-increasing rates of suicide and homicide that we are seeing today among students, it becomes vital that educators and parents know exactly what to look for and how to prevent such tragedies from occurring. The information and strategies taught on this workshop are based on Dr. Gluckman’s unique combination of the very latest evidence-based research in Neuroscience, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Integrative Psychology. Note; The content, information and tools are applicable for all ages.

• Understanding the underlying causes of suicide and/or homicide.

• The personality profile of children/adults who resort to suicide or homicide.

• The 7 most important behavioral signs to be aware of.

• How to know the difference.

• Combining your intuition with scientific facts.

#4: The Joys and Challenges of Educating and Parenting Gifted and Talented Children

Gifted kids often feel misunderstood, frustrated and lonely because they not only think differently but they also feel differently.  This workshop gives teachers and parents the tools they need understand these wonderful children and relate to them in ways that will build them not only academically but also emotionally.

It can be a great gift for educators to teach Gifted and Talented children and watch how their remarkable brains learn. Gifted kids, however, have emotional challenges that are often overlooked because the expectation is that they are as emotionally smart as they are academically smart. Being academically and intellectually exceptional can sometimes be both a blessing and a burden for the child as well as the parents.

What is different about the brains of gifted and intelligent children. Why intelligence test results fail to tell the whole story.
