Award Information General Conference Information 2 Table of Contents For further information about the conference please visit www.manitobacec.ca page 1 page 2 pages 3, 4 and 5 Center Insert pages 6, 7 and 8 page 9 page 10 Find us on Facebook @ www.facebook.com/manitobacec Keynote Speaker—Thursday, February 20, 2014 Dr. Larry Brendtro: Dr. Larry Brendtro is founder of Reclaiming Youth International, Dean of the Starr Global Learning Network, and former president of Starr Commonwealth serving troubled youth in Michigan and Ohio. He has broad experience as a youth worker, educator, administrator, researcher, and author. He holds a Ph.D. in Education and Psychology from the University of Michigan, is a licensed psychologist, and has taught in the area of behavior disorders at the University of Illinois, the Ohio State University, and Augustana College. Dr. Brendtro is editor of the journal Reclaiming Children and Youth, and with colleagues has authored twelve books and 200 articles on challenging youth. His most recent book is Deep Brain Learning: Pathways to Potential with Challenging Youth. He has served on the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, chaired by the U.S. Attorney General, and trains youth professionals worldwide. Keynote address (morning) The Resilient Brain Exciting discoveries in brain science have important implications for success with challenging students. Young people who have experienced toxic environments and traumatic relationships have problems that do not respond to typical attempts to modify surface behavior. Dr. Brendtro will highlight strategies for building resilience, drawing from his latest book, Deep Brain Learning: Pathways to Connecting, Coping, and Thriving (Circle of Courage Publications, 2014). The new science of epigenetics shows that genes are not destiny and the brain has inbuilt "resilience maps" for building trust, problem solving, self regulation, and prosocial values. This presentation combines the latest research with practical strategies for building respectful bonds and fostering positive change . Attendance at this session is required for accreditation. Breakout Session (afternoon) (T1) Developmental Audit® This strength-based assessment model is based on the Circle of Courage and ecological concepts of positive youth development first described In Reclaiming Youth at Risk (2002) and grounded in the research base of Deep Brain Learning (2014). Developmental Audits were piloted with youth presenting chronic or severe problems not responsive to traditional assessment and intervention in educational, treatment, youth work, and juvenile justice settings. The Developmental Audit identifies the private logic and goals of the young person as a key source of data. The ecological and developmental perspective provides a foundation to plan strength-based treatment and positive behavior support interventions. The presenter will share examples developed in a ten year program in regular and special education in Michigan schools. Attendance at this session is required for accreditation. Kayleigh Loesel-Kolarz, artist, 2014 conference poster and brochure Kayleigh is a grade 7 student at H.C Avery Middle school. She is an avid reader and enjoys sketching. One of her favorite series to read is the Hunger Games. Kayleigh is a hardworking, kind and positive role model in her community. 3 For further information about the conference please visit www.manitobacec.ca Find us on Facebook @ www.facebook.com/manitobacec Thursday, February 20, 2014 Keynote Address 9:00 to 11:45 a.m. * Sessions eligible for credit, see page 9 *The Resilient Brain: Dr. Larry Brendtro 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Vegetarian Lunch provided Afternoon Sessions (1:00 – 3:30 p.m.) Please register for one of the following: T1 * Developmental Audit® Dr. Larry Brendtro Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All Please see page 3 for session description T2 Practical Ways to Support Social Inclusion at School and in the Community Mary LaPage Leclerc, Student Services Consultant, and Susan Moore, Occupational Therapist, RETSD Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All This session will explore ways parents, teachers and community workers can support participation in unstructured environments.

Thursday Afternoon Sessions (1:00 – 3:30 P.M.) continued T4 Appropriate Educational Programming: Resolving Disputes Doug Anderson, Review Coordinator, Manitoba Education Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All School divisions and parents may disagree about the education of students with exceptional learning needs. Manitoba school divisions must have a process that protects the rights of students and parents and addresses such differences of opinion. You may wish to learn about addressing a dispute before you find yourself in one. This presentation will review typical school division policy on dispute resolution and a parent’s right to make formal appeal to Manitoba Education when efforts to resolve the dispute in the school division have failed. What happens then? The formal dispute resolution process will be explained: the legislation pertaining to educational programming or placement, the criteria for complaints, mediation, appointment of a Review Committee, document review, hearings, and a final report to both parents and the school division with Committee findings and recommendations. Relevant support documents will be provided and discussion will include informal dispute resolution or “how to avoid disputes”. The session is relevant to both parents and educators. T5 Why Every School Needs a Dog: Animal Assisted Therapy, Learning, Counselling and Play Carolynne Pitura, Volunteer for the St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog Program, Instructor with the Faculty of Education (University of Winnipeg), and Retired Teacher (RETSD); presenting with Mortimer and Miss Jayne Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All Research has shown that animals have a significant impact on the development and well being of children and young adults. Children learn about social interactions, boundaries, empathy and responsibility through contact with animals. Studies have shown that children who own pets have higher self esteem, better social skills and fewer emotional and behavioral concerns. In this session you will meet Mortimer and Miss Jayne, Labrador Retrievers, who are certified St John’s Ambulance Therapy dogs. Mortimer and Miss Jayne originally began their canine assistant duties when their owner and handler, who was a junior high school counsellor, took them to work with her several times a week. They assisted students with self esteem and relational issues, anxieties and phobias, anger management, conflict mediation, grief counselling, social skill development and academic achievement. Currently Mortimer, Miss Jayne, Skye and Carolynne are volunteering in 10 schools in River East Transcona, Winnipeg One and Seven Oaks School Divisions providing support to students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. In this session you will be presented with the research behind canine assisted therapy learning, benefits and rewards, and the impact on students and staff. The presentation will also provide information on how to set up a program, how to inform staff, parents and students, which students should be involved and how to address concerns related to health, fears and access. 5 Presenters’ handouts will be available at www.manitobacec.ca after February 1, 2014. Keynote Speaker - Friday, February 21, 2014 Kim Barthel: Kim Barthel integrates the science of occupational therapy and neurobiology with cutting edge practice to support the conscious evolution of the human spirit. With 30 years of professional experience in the field as a therapist, Kim’s approach to helping others is visionary and eclectic yet grounded and “doable” in daily life. Kim began her career in Winnipeg as a pioneering pediatric occupational therapist serving children and adolescents with a broad spectrum of neurological and developmental disabilities. Today, Kim is primarily a multi-disciplinary teacher of therapists, and is sought after around the world for her knowledge on trauma, neuro-development treatment, sensory integration therapy and the science of attachment. Kim has lived and worked in Nunavut with the Inuit and has extensive experience working with First Nations across western Canada. A couple of Kim’s recent professional challenges include pioneering therapy services in Asia (India, China and Singapore) and attachment training in North America in support of lasting healing beyond sexual abuse and addiction. When time permits, she is also an author in process of writing three therapy-related books; perhaps most notably “Elevating the Conversation” which she is co-authoring with Theo Fleury. Kim currently lives in Victoria, BC, with her husband and sixteen year old daughter. Keynote address (morning) Self-Regulation in the Classroom: Pathway to Learning This presentation is designed to assist teachers and professionals involved in the educational field learn to support children with behavioral challenges and learning problems. Looking at self regulation assists professionals in “looking beyond the behavior” and into the nervous system. It helps with understanding how the child’s behavior is a manner of coping. Strategies in adapting the environment, altering interaction and providing appropriate supports for children who have dysregulation. Many children entering school do not come with the ability to stay calm, get focused and learn. Add children with different diagnoses experiencing challenges in the manner in which they process sensory information (for example, learning disabilities, developmental coordination disorder, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and emotional behavioral disorders). This presentation includes examination of behaviours you may be experiencing in the classroom and strategies to help all students be ready and available for learning. Attendance at this session is required for accreditation. Breakout Session (afternoon) (F1) The Mindful Teacher This workshop will help teachers deepen their skills of "tuning into" what’s happening, inside and around them, offering educators fresh, straightforward approaches to training attention and generating compassion and understand of behavioural issues that occur in the classroom. Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness emphasizes how the teacher's personal familiarity with mindfulness seeds the ground for an education infused with attention, awareness, kindness, empathy, compassion, and gratitude. Segments of learning will focus on a full range of topics including classroom procedures, lesson structure, and pacing, as well as social and emotional learning. This approach familiarizes the learner with mindfulness and fosters gradual and steady skills development. This will be both a personal growth experience and a professional growth experience. Outcomes: 1. The learner will develop a preliminary understanding of mindfulness practice in the classroom environment. 2. The learner will develop an understanding of how mindfulness affects the nervous system and learning functions. 3. The learner will develop the skills to use mindfulness practice when intervening with challenging behaviour. 4. The learner will develop skills in experiencing the teacher/student interaction as a personal growth opportunity Attendance at this session is required for accreditation. 6 For further information about the conference please visit www.manitobacec.ca Find us on Facebook @ www.facebook.com/manitobacec Friday, February 21, 2014 Keynote Address 9:00 to 11:45 a.m. * Sessions eligible for credit, see page 9 *Self-Regulation in the Classroom: Pathway to Learning : Kim Barthel 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Vegetarian Lunch provided Afternoon Sessions (1:00 – 3:30 p.m.) Please register for one of the following: F1 *The Mindful Teacher Kim Barthel Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All Please see page 6 for session description F2 Just My Friend: The impact of children on children Lynda Dobbin-Turner and Trem Cleaver, LIFE Inc. Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: Early and Middle Years Lynda and Trem share the story of the friendship that developed between her son Shane Dickson and Trem Cleaver, starting when they met at age 4 and continuing on until Shane’s sudden passing at age 17. Together they hope to share that although there is no doubt about the impact that having a best-friend had on Shane as a child who experienced life living with Cerebral Palsy, but just as importantly, the impact that Shane has had on Trem, who is a young man who lives life without the challenges that disability can offer. Through words, music and pictures they share the story of the history of disabilities, the boys growing up together, the obstacles faced as well as steps put in place to overcome them, and the effect that a relationship had on both boys. As we come to realize that, as with all of us, friends and relationships are the most important thing in the lives of people with disabilities, it’s also time to realize the impact that those people can have on people who step into the role of “friend”. Trem openly shares the impact that this friendship had on him both as a child and now as a young man who continues to work to support vulnerable people. Lynda gives insights and ideas of how this was facilitated in the background as the parent, sharing tools and resources used. And while Lynda, as someone who continues to work in the field of relationship development for adults with disabilities, and understands what a gift Trem’s friendship was to Shane, Trem has always contended “He’s just my friend..” Descriptions of the Friday afternoon sessions continue on page 8. 7 Presenters’ handouts will be available at www.manitobacec.ca after February 1, 2014. Friday Afternoon Sessions (1:00 – 3:30 P.M.) continued F3 Deep Down in my Heart: Exploring Music Therapy Erin Koop, Accredited Music Therapist Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All Music is a natural part of daily life. It draws people together, forming a space in which it is safe to experiment and express oneself. Using different musical experiences, and the resulting relationships, Music Therapy programs are designed to provide opportunities for people to make connections and further develop skills in areas including communication, social, motor and more. This session will explore how Music Therapy can play a positive and effective role in the lives of students with exceptional needs. The therapeutic aspect of Music Therapy will be highlighted through a discussion of goals and outcomes combined with examples and opportunities for audience participation. One client sang it beautifully: "Here I am me. I love to make music, deep down in my heart.” F4 “Teaming” with Education Assistants Manitoba Teachers Society Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level : All As all educators strive to build inclusive environments in our schools, it is critical that assignment of duties and tasks respects the legal responsibilities of principals and teachers and takes into account the legislated restrictions of the educational assistant’s job description. Participants in this facilitated discussion will work to establish practices that ensure the appropriate roles and responsibilities of all school personnel are understood and honoured. Through various activities and discussions participants will develop strategies to establish sound working relationships within their schools and classrooms. F5 Police Services and Schools: Collaboration Initiatives to Support Student Success Winnipeg Police Service, Strategic Initiatives Unit Intended Audience: All Intended Grade Level: All Community based policing is a partnership between the police and the community they serve using new and innovative ways to help solve contemporary community problems. The concept of community based policing is not new as it involves a return to a philosophy upon which policing was originally premised: "Police are the public and the public are the police". School communities are natural settings for the implementation of community-based policing supports. A member of the Strategic Initiatives Unit of the Winnipeg Police Services will be sharing information on successful initiatives involving collaboration between schools and the Winnipeg Police Service. A variety of perspectives including those of students, school staff, parents, and other members of the school community, will be included. 8 Presenters’ handouts will be available at www.manitobacec.ca after February 1st, 2014. “Yes I Can” Awards Evening The Manitoba Council for Exceptional Children Conference 2014 presents the th 24 Annual “Yes I Can!” Awards 7:00 p.m. Thursday, February 20, 2014 Victoria Inn Ballroom Be sure to visit our Art Raffle and Basket Raffle tables with all proceeds going to support “YES I CAN!” International Award winners.
