CROSSING THE BRIDGE – How to Meet the Changing Needs of Children: Understanding the Importance of our Senses – Hannah Jackson
October 23 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
In working with Rudolf Steiner’s 12 senses, we will look at how we can continue to meet the children of today. Anyone who is a parent or a teacher of children from ages 0-21 will benefit from this talk. Participants will gain an understanding of how the increase of today’s attention, speech, auditory processing and spectrum “disorders” link back to our senses.
Teachers and parents will leave with tools that they can implement both at home and at school to support our children.
