At the root of learning and fully participating in life is a set of critical skills all children need: understanding and managing emotions and reactions, having the ability to calm down, focus on tasks, control impulses, and behave in ways that help them get along well with other people. Pause and think about how many times each day we all need these skills. It is our role as parents, grandparents, and caregivers of all kinds to help children develop self-regulation.
Join us for a thought-provoking lecture with Jake Greenspan as we explore the science and strategy of building and improving self-regulation, the foundation for a child’s success in school and in life.
Meet Jake Greenspan
Working with his father, the late Dr. Stanley Greenspan, who created the Developmental, Individual differences, Relationship-based (DIR) Model and the “Greenspan Floortime Approach,” Jake co-founded the The Floortime Center in Bethesda, MD. As co-director, Jake has worked with over 1000 families and has presented workshops for dozens of health and educational organizations. In addition to providing The Greenspan Floortime Approach, The Floortime Center has expanded their clinic to include Social Groups, Sensory Integration, Occupational Therapy, Vision Therapy, Auditory Therapy, and Feeding Therapy.
St. David’s Center has partnered with The Floortime Center to become the Midwest Regional Training Center for the Greenspan Floortime Model, and now we have the opportunity to host Jake for an evening of thought-provoking remarks that will most certainly shape how you see your own role as a parent for years to come.
