Location: Noel Wien Public Library, Fairbanks, Alaska
Date: December 11, 2014
Time: 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Possible discussion topics:
|Getting What You Teach To Stick (This will help all your students)
Does your child know something one day, and not the next? Are you constantly looking for new and different approaches teaching the same information? Is much of your teaching more accurately “re-teaching”? If you answered yes to these questions, this is the workshop for you. There is a reason the information is not “sticking”. Children who do not retain the information they learn are usually as frustrated as the parent teaching them. Learn the neurodevelopmental cause and what you can do to turn it around. You do not have to cope with the problem, you can eliminate it! This information will help all your children.
Auditory Processing Challenges? Yes, There is Hope!
There is nothing more heartbreaking than having a bright, wonderful child who is struggling academically, emotionally, behaviorally, or socially. All too often friends and family are quick to point out deficiencies. However, the answers for addressing the problems often fall short. During this workshop we will look at time proven techniques for helping families overcome the challenging obstacles blocking their children.
Frustration with Phonics? Help for the Struggling Reader
If you are committed to teaching your child to read with phonics but are facing nothing but frustration and tears, you will find out why and what you can do about it. Learn about the foundational skills necessary before phonics can be utilized effectively for a child. And take home the activities to do daily to build this foundation.
Home Educating Your Child With Special Needs
Labels limit. Labels are typically long lists of what an individual will not be able to do or accomplish. – Break free from labels. Development has a systematic hierarchy or pattern. Following this pattern will organize the central nervous system and build the foundation for neurological organization and thus open up efficient, easy learning. Help your child overcome to reach their fullest, God-given potential by learning the necessary tools to build a solid foundation for learning
All about Math (This information will help YOU and all your children)
Most families think about math from a curriculum point of view—- which one is best. In the experience of neurodevelopmentalists, difficulty in learning math is not the fault of the curriculum but a symptom of underlying weaknesses or disorganization in the learning ease of the child. In this workshop you will learn ways to separate the various parts of math and teach to the child’s strength while remediating any weakness. Learn the best and easiest ways for the brain to remember math facts. If you want your child to go on to higher level math what is the most important ability to make sure they excel at? Come and learn all the in and outs of math—— In this workshop you will gain information on how to teach math—from the very first starting points of number recognition, counting and basic addition through teaching math facts and higher level math concepts.

When There Are Challenges
Don’t Live with Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD – Overcome It!!!
Neurodevelopmentalist Cyndi Ringoen of Can-Do, Spokane, WA, will be conducting neurodevelopmental evaluations December 11-13, 2014 in Fairbanks. She has openings for any of those days for new families who have children (or adults) who are struggling with learning and/or behavior problems ranging from ADHD and autism to traumatic brain injury as well as other labels. http://ican-do.net/ Cyndi usually gets a suite at the Wedgewood resort in Fairbanks and conducts evaluations at the dining room table. Kind of informal, but less stressful for some children. She has also stayed with client families and conducted evals from private homes, but sometimes there can be distractions at someone’s home. Current fees and scheduling info can be found here: http://ican-do.net/about-us/our-services/22-evaluation-process-and-fee-schedule Client families split the cost of Cyndi’s airfare to Alaska. Of course, more families mean reduced airfare costs for each family. Public school students are welcome. Cyndi is able to write an after school program to be done at home which would enhance and complement the services received at school. She can also make recommendations for families wishing to make the transition from public school to home school.
As an independent homeschooler for nearly twenty years, I have been greatly blessed by Cyndi’s willingness to travel all the way up to Alaska for the past seventeen years to assist us in home educating our son with Down syndrome. I really believe there is an unmet need in Alaska for quality, cutting edge help for our struggling learners, especially among independenthomeschoolers. Cyndi has been writing programs for our son since infancy and I can’t tell you how grateful we are to have been able to avoid government programs for our son and still “keep all the bases covered”.
