    How to support young people and teachers who stammer

    Upto 8% of children will stammer at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, this will stay as a lifelong condition for 1%. People who Stammer are more likely to suffer from adverse mental health issues. My work is not for the 1% of people who Stammer but for the 99% of you that don't. You can make reasonable adjustments in your teaching that can make a huge difference to these kids.

    Presentation Title:
    Understanding the teenage brain and how to work it into your teaching
    Details:
    Human beings and our students in particular are inherently selfish (an important survival skill), understanding more about how the teenage brain works has for me been a game changer. Although there is quite the array of complicated language, there are simple findings that can be used for all lessons. I will be sharing my findings from reading texts from Daniel Kahneman, Malcolm Gladwell, Steve Peters 'Chimp Brain', Nicola Morgan and Matthew Syed. Knowing and understanding how the brain works will help us as teachers to control our 'chimp brains'. More importantly, we can use this understanding to develop strategies in teaching PSE, life skills, revision, behaviour management and intervention.
