Mindfulness for Families
Mindful Schools states that mindfulness means ‘maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment’. During this workshop, Foothills Academy teacher Ayra Kelly will share specific techniques to help children with Learning Disorders and/or Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) manage stress and develop mindful ways of thinking in order to help them regulate their emotions both at home and at school. Parents will leave with simple and easy ways to integrate these methods into their home.

Presenter: Ayra Kelly, Teacher
