Ed, RCC), Mental Health Clinician / Therapist with VCH Child and Youth Mental Health Services and Compass Clinic will provide an understanding of how challenges with executive functioning impact learning and behaviour at school.

TRANSFORMATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
RANDY JONES, Behavior Intervention Service Coordinator for the Okanagan Skaha School District, will guide educators in creating best practices for classroom management. The presentation is intended to cover the topic of classroom management comprehensively—from the practical techniques to the more transformative techniques that will lead to a better teacher pedagogy. The presentation will help educators create a growth mind-set; if educators are intentional about what they do in the classroom, they will be much more effective.
