Lori L. Desautels

Adversity! The Brain, Behavior, and Learning presented on September 5. Click Here for the entire presentation.

On September 5, we had a captive audience as Dr. Lori Desautels shared with us the WHY our child does what he or she does and that it MIGHT just be their BRAIN. During our time together, we focused on the child and how their environment plays into their openness to learn. Feeling safe is critical before learning can begin.

“Attitudes are contagious!” Dr. Desautels left us wanting to learn more. Please enjoy a copy of her presentation to do just that. In addition, Dr. Desautels shared ”A Menu of Strategies.”

“Who are YOU?” said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I-I hardly know, sir, just at present – at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”
