Frustrated by a loved one’s social or academic behaviors? Seeking effective non-drug treatment for challenges of daily living?
This 12-hour introductory course teaches the Foundations and Applications of HANDLE as it applies to a wide variety of Neurodevelopmental differences. Participants will have an opportunity to look beyond the labels at the underlying causes of conditions such as: ADD/ADHD, Sleep issues, Learning disabilities, Behavior challenges, Autism Spectrum Disorders and more. Begin to see behaviors as communication with new “HANDLE eyes” and learn unique HANDLE activities that can be applied immediatly in the classroom, home and clinic setting.
The Holistic Approach to NeuroDevelopment and Learning Efficiency
HANDLE® was developed by Judith Bluestone, an award-winning educator and pioneer in applied neuroscience. It offers a new paradigm that sees behaviors as communication, which provides a unique perspective for gaining insights and increasing compassionate understanding. Founded on an interactive, developmental model of human functioning, HANDLE directly addresses underlying neurodevelopmental irregularities, rather than simply providing short-term solutions.
HANDLE draws upon knowledge from many different disciplines and provides families, caregivers, educators and therapists a gentle, effective, holistic and non-drug solution to challenging conditions and perplexing situations.
HANDLE has helped families across the nation and around the world to achieve significant results with walking, talking, writing, attending and memory. HANDLE supports individuals of all ages with both lifelong and acquired challenges.
"I am seriously impressed. This work touches the nerve of virtually everything taking place in our current cultural crisis of childhood." - Joseph Chilton Pearce, author Magical Child, Evolution’s End, and other books
"HANDLE has taught me techniques that are simple yet inexpensive..... I have seen dramatic and drastic changes in the clinets with whom I incourporate HANDLE activities." - Gail Buchanen, Phyiscal Therapist
No one is too old for HANDLE “Helping Extraordinary People Do Ordinary Things”
“Thank you again Elizabeth, I really appreciated the opportunity and the information. I was surprised how willing (my son’s team was) to implement the suggestions I brought into his new IEP. They were in total agreement and could see how the changes would benefit him. For once I feel empowered to help – as a mom that is a tremendous benefit.” Debra D., Mom of a special needs child
