ADHD & AUTISM EXPERT SESSIONS

Behavior Collection

10 Sessions with Some of the World's Most Renowned Experts on Neurodifferences and Behavior

About these expert sessions

The behavior of complex kids can be frustrating and confusing. We believe that behavior is communication and that kids do well if they can. More often that not, what looks and feels like your child giving you a hard time is actually your child having a hard time — and struggling with regulation and communication.

This collection features 10 experts in the fields of ADHD, autism, child development, and behavior. Each of the included sessions will help you understand your child’s behavior, taking their unique wiring into account, and will give you the tools you need to help them improve. These experts share insights into:

  • the brain science and human physiology that explain behavior; 
  • the mindset shift required to effectively address negative behavior, intensity, and meltdowns; and
  • the parenting approaches that actually work to address behavior in kids with neurodifferences like ADHD and autism.

What you'll learn

Join us on a journey of discovery where you will learn how to nurture your child with ADHD and/or autism while bringing peace to your entire family.  Our goal is to help you understand your child while sharing strategies that will help you:

Understand Your Child's Neurology

The brains of kids with ADHD and/or autism are differently wired in many ways, and these developmental differences can make managing emotions more challenging.

Decode Your Child's Behavior

Behavior is communication. It's the outward signal of an underlying struggle. Learn how to decode your child's behavior to determine the WHYs behind their actions and intensity.

Shift Your Mindset to Be More Effective

There are a lot of parenting strategies that just don't work for kids with ADHD and/or autism. The best solutions shift your focus from fixing to understanding. These courses will teach you how to develop a mindset that facilitates calm collaboration.

Successfully Improve Behavior

Learn the brain science-validated tools and strategies you need to help your child feel safe; the necessary pre-requisite for improving negative or unwanted behavior.

What you'll get

Jackie Flynn

Is Your Child Giving You a Hard Time, or Having a Hard Time?

Jackie Flynn, Ed.S., LMHC, RPT

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, EMDR Therapist

Sometimes our kids say or do horrible things to us when they are upset. In this interview, Jackie Flynn describes what is going on for our kids, and ways you can help them develop the ability to stay calm in the heat of the moment. She also talks about ways that we as parents can self-regulate, so that our kids can calm down more quickly. This session is packed with practical information you can use right away to help yourself and your kids.

Mona Delahooke

Beyond Behaviors: Ending the Blame Game

Mona Delahooke, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Author of Beyond Behaviors

What does a child’s behavior tell us about the child? For the last 100 years, we have thought of behavior as something to be controlled and shaped. But when we focus on the behavior itself, we miss the possibility of better understanding the reason for the behavior. In this interview, Dr. Mona Delahooke talks about the difference between top down behaviors (which we can control) and bottom up behaviors (which come from our body’s attempts to adapt to the situation). She also describes the different states of regulation and dysregulation, what some of the triggers might be, and how to help our kids through them.

Behavior Is Communication: Unlocking the Reasons Behind Behavior,

Behavior Is Communication: Unlocking the Reasons Behind Behavior

Ross Greene, Ph.D.

Founding Director of Lives in the Balance, Originator of the CPS Model, Author The Explosive Child

When you view behavior as communication, you’re able to see the reasons behind behavior and address those reasons to improve behavior. When you view behavior as something to be fixed, you and your child will continue to struggle. In this interview, Dr. Ross Greene explains how to see your child’s behavior as communication, as well as how to determine and address triggers for better outcomes. 

Using the Nurtured Heart Approach® to Improve Behavior

Using the Nurtured Heart Approach® to Improve Behavior

Tammi Van Hollander, LCSW, RPT

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Play Therapist, Certified Trainer for the Nurtured Heart Approach®

Everyone has inherent greatness — even kids with challenges. This is the premise of the Nurtured Heart Approach and the work that Tammi Van Hollander does with her clients and families. In this interview, Tammi explains how the Nurtured Heart Approach is more than just a behavior management strategy, but a framework for building self-esteem and creating healthy parent-child relationships. Confidence always improves behavior.

Brain Hijack and Its Role in Behavior and Your Parenting

Sarah Wayland, Ph.D.

RDI® Consultant, Parent Coach, Special Needs Care Navigator

Listen to this presentation to learn about the brain systems responsible for intense emotions and meltdowns, and also those responsible for regulation and recovery. When you understand how they work, you will be able to use those insights to successfully navigate intense moments and think about how to avoid triggering them in the first place.

School Stress and Its Effect on Brain Functioning, Behavior, and Emotions

Jerome Schultz, Ph.D.

Pediatric Clinical Neuropsychologist, Faculty at Harvard Medical School, Author Nowhere to Hide

Jerome Schultz, PhD, is a clinical neuropsychologist and lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He’s also the author of Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with ADHD & LD Hate School and What We Can Do About It. Learn about the three levels of stress, how much stress kids with ADHD are really under, and what you can and should do to help your child if their stress levels are toxic.

Understanding the Rumble & Rage and Managing the Cycle of Meltdowns

Brenda Smith Myles, Ph.D.

President of AAPC Publishing, World-Renown Speaker on Autism

When your child is losing it, there are predictable stages they go through – from rumble through rage to recovery. If you have a child who is easily or unpredictably triggered to fight, flight, or freeze, it’s hard to know how to respond. In this presentation, Dr. Brenda Smith Myles helps us understand that meltdowns are not purposeful behavior – they are neurologically based and need to be addressed as an involuntary response to something in the environment that they are having trouble with. Learn to identify the behaviors that indicate that a child is starting to rumble and how to handle it. If you can’t address the rumble, learn how to identify the signs of a rage, and how to avoid making that worse. Learn why restraint is not helpful during a rage, and what to do to help your child safely get through it to recovery.

The Trauma Effect Neurodivergence Has on the Brain

Robert Cox, MA, LPC, NCC

Therapist, Author of The Life Recovery Method

There is growing research that shows that the experiences of individuals with autism affect the brain and functioning in the same way that enduring trauma does. This is remarkably telling as to what much of life with autism is like for your child, as well as why many of their behaviors occur. Listen as Robert Cox and Penny Williams talk about what autism feels like to your child, using the way the autistic brain works as evidence. Learn how sensory struggles and fear impact kids with autism, why it’s virtually the same experience as traumatic events, and how to help your child cope.

Bill Stixrud & Ned Johnson

Giving Kids With ADHD & Autism a Sense of Control Over Their Lives

William Stixrud, Ph.D. & Ned Johnson

Authors of The Self-Driven Child

In their NY Times best-selling book, The Self-Driven Child, Bill Stixrud & Ned Johnson help parents understand why giving your child a sense of control over their environment is the key to self-motivation. In this interview you will learn how a sense of control can serve as an antidote to the toxic effects of stress and why teens and young adults need a sense of control to become independent. You will also learn why a sense of control does not come easily to neurodiverse kids, and how we can help our kids, teens, and young adults develop a healthy sense of control.

Self-Regulation

Susan Hopkins, Ed.D.

Executive Director of The MEHRIT Centre

Everything is harder when you feel out of sorts. And so often we focus on the issue that triggers a breakdown, when in fact the real problem can be traced to the fact that you are struggling with something else. This is true for our kids, but it’s also true for the adults in their lives. In this interview, Susan Hopkins, Ed.D. describes a methodology that will help you assess what might be going wrong. She describes the five domains of Self-Reg (biological, emotional, cognitive, social and pro-social), and the 5 processes you can use to restore balance.

Start truly understanding your child and improving behavior.
