Join Us For Our February Workshops
When Stress Goes Up,
Learning Goes Down
Featuring Noel Foy, M.A.
Founder, AMMPE Neuroeducational Consulting
Thursday, February 13 | 7-9pm
220 Reservoir Street, Suite 6, Needham, MA
The impact of stress has far-reaching consequences, affecting behavior, ability, and receptivity to learning. With the spike in anxiety in children and teens, parents and teachers need to be equipped with key information and quick strategies to decrease stress and help anxious students face their fears. When you give anxiety what it needs—not what it wants—you can spend less time dealing with behavior issues and cultivate an environment where children stress less, think better, and learn more.
Using A.B.C. Worry Free as a reference tool, we will address misunderstandings about anxiety and learn:
- How anxiety works
- Patterns of anxiety and how to interrupt them
- An actionable strategy to manage stressors such as anxiety, frustration, or anger
- Communication, accommodation, and skill building tips

With technology at the forefront of “Generation Z”, it is important to engage students by embedding it into learning. In regards to special education, utilizing assistive and adaptive technology to support students with language, literacy, and learning tasks can truly be a game changer. During this workshop we will demonstrate free AT tools to support students across the curriculum, including speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and organizational/study skills supports. We will also explore ways parents and teachers can embed free assistive technology tools into applied practice with students who need support in order to fill gaps and access the curriculum.
Topics covered will include:
• Free AT tools for language, literacy, and learning
• Matching assistive technology tools to student needs
• The role of the SLP/SLA in AT assessment for language, literacy, and learning tools
Admission is FREE, but space is limited and first come, first served. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience using the buttons above. Light refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
