"After having taken multiple classes through SCT Grad Classes, I would highly recommend this program to other educators. Professor Berg is flexible, understanding, and a great resource when questions arise, and each of the classes that are offered relate directly to specific topics and issues pertinent to education today. The ability to take classes and work at your own pace through SCT is a great bonus for busy educators."

Understanding and Engaging Learners with Mental Health Needs

Print Based Course Printed Course

This course reflects the growing awareness that students' emotional and mental health is key to their success in school. The readings for this course offer scientifically up-to-date, all-in-one guides to the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children, from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder to autistic spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction. This course provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments. In addition, effective behavioral strategies for responding to children. After completing this course, educators will have a good knowledge base of childhood mental health conditions as well as how they can play a stronger front line role in identifying potential mental health issues and help students thrive both academically and socially. This course contains content from another SCT course, the Co-existing Neuro-behavioral Course, but has brand new Mental Health Content. This is a very timely course with all of the new findings on mental health needs in school today.
