Speaking and Workshops
A child’s visible struggles are often just the tip of the iceberg.
Underlying factors often worsen or create symptoms.
The good news is, answers exist once you have the full picture!
The Child Decoded team offers a range of services to support you, whether you are a parent, teacher, or practitioner and whether your kids struggle with learning or behavioral problems.
“This workshop distilled the information it took me decades to gather into a few hours. As a parent of a son with multiple learning differences and as a teacher of over thirty years, I see this workshop as an effective way to give you the tools that will help you succeed as a parent and advocate of kids with learning or behavioral differences.” ~ Craig A.
The Iceberg Model:
This provides the basis for most of our presentations, no matter what specific focus we may be addressing. Your child’s symptoms (i.e., the diagnoses they’ve received, which basically just identify what they’re struggling with) are often just the tip of the iceberg of what’s really happening.
We offer an unusual cross-disciplined perspective that looks through more than one lens and digs deeper than the learning or behavioral symptoms. This allows us to offer a broader context for your child’s issues, which in turn opens the way for new, more comprehensive solutions.
We developed this model after decades of clinical experience collaborating with other professionals to find answers for our most challenging clients. We’ve found that the majority of children –especially those that don’t seem to respond to treatment – benefit from this kind of deeper examination.
Whether a child is emotionally shut down, chronically underperforming, defiant, or struggling with learning in multiple but ill-defined ways, there are almost always answers to be found when you look at deeper levels of their system.
Don’t just manage symptoms; make real shifts!
“This workshop was very helpful in giving me new perspectives to explore. I appreciated the lengthy Q&A section.”
“This workshop opened my eyes to the many ways a child can be struggling. I feel much better educated about how to spot what a child’s true issue might be. I am happy to have more reasons to be compassionate and supportive!” ~ Christy G., Teacher
