THE CAMPBELL HALL NEURODEVELOPMENTAL TEACHING AND LEARNING INSTITUTE:
SCHOOLS ATTUNED FOR ALL KINDS OF MINDS

Research-based professional development for educators that will change the way you teach

Join us for a comprehensive five-day institute that provides an in-depth exploration of learning and learning variations. You’ll learn how the mind functions through a research-based framework of eight neurodevelopmental constructs and explore – through interactive discussions, case studies, and reflections – how an understanding of the science of learning can enhance your instructional decision-making. You’ll develop skills to identify strengths and breakdowns in student learning, link them to a student’s unique learning profile, and effectively select instructional strategies that leverage a student’s strengths and help him or her overcome barriers to learning.

Expert facilitators guide your learning experience and provide you with a wealth of strategies to take back to your classroom, including signature processes and tools that help you address the diverse learning needs in your classroom.

Participants will be able to:
  • Use the neurodevelopmental framework to support students' uniquely wired minds to create a constructive learning environment for all students
  • Gain confidence and an increased sense of efficacy in selecting and applying a variety of insturctional strategies to meet the learning needs of individual students and groups of students
  • Develop comprehensive management plans that address student learning strenths and weaknesses
  • Use a common language about learners and learning with colleagues, students, and families, which allows conversations about student learning challenges to move

  • Enhance the skills of faculty and staff to respond to critical incidents when they happen and learn to facilitate effective and constructive conversations about issues of equity and diversity.
