Presentation Title:
Using Adlerian Psychology to build resilience in times of uncertainty
Details:
Teachers have faced a stressful year. In some way this sentence is true in any year, as the profession is synonymous with stress, but this year it particularly true. In my talk I want to share the work of Alfred Adler an Austrian psychologist who developed a philosophy of living that helps people to manage their emotions and seize control of their life when the unexpected happens. The talk will give a brief outline of his life, some of his ideas and a few examples of how they can be applied in educational settings.

Presentation Title:
Making the last five minutes of the lesson count for all children
Details:
To develop a truly inclusive classroom, we need to be aware of children’s needs throughout the lesson. All too often we start the lesson with good intentions, but they are lost by the final phase of the lesson
I will be looking at how to make inclusion work in the vital last five minutes of the lesson, thinking about how we support transitions for all children. The focus will be on workable small tweaks and adaptations that reduce stress and workload for children and teachers.

Presentation Title:
Teaching and learning with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder
Details:
We can’t be expected to know about every medical condition but we can be expected to listen and believe. As educators we want the best for the children, young people or adults who learn with us, so when we know they need something we will try to help them meet that need and adjust what we do. We come into contact and work with more people with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders than we may realise. Often they may not know exactly what they need or their needs vary hugely from hour to hour, day to day, so our awareness and willingness to adapt can help. This can make the difference between an education experience that shapes a future and nurtures potential or the denial of any education at all.
I’d like to share my experience as a hypermobile teacher, parent to a young adult with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Aunt to a secondary aged nephew with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder. I’ll share the experiences of other parents and their children and some practical advice on how we can help our colleagues and our learners who may be on the Hypermobility Spectrum.

Presentation Title:
Why do we need to know about Hypermobility syndromes?  Introducing the Ehlers-Danlos and Hypermobility Disorders School Toolkit for primary and secondary school staff
Details:
Why do we need to know about hypermobility disorders/syndromes (Ehlers-Danlos) plus co-occurring conditions?

Attainment and attendance for pupils with hypermobility syndromes is limited by the misunderstanding and misdiagnosis of ‘issues with our tissues’.
This presentation describes what Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders are,  how they impact pupils with these issues, their attainment and attendance plus other common co-occurrences with other neurodivergent conditions and disorders.
Launching late April 2021 is the new UK wide Hypermobility School Toolkit, a free online resource produced by the 2 leading charities in the UK, Ehlers-Danlos.org and HMSA.   I am passionate about this and voluntarily leading the content for this toolkit after my personal diagnosis of hypermobility and professional educational career.
