An applied educational neuroscience program issued 12 new certifications to teachers from all three Montgomery County school districts.
The program, offered at Butler University for teachers looking to continue their education, is designed to meet the needs of educators, social workers and counselors who work beside children experiencing adversity and trauma.
“We are extremely appreciative of these leaders’ willingness to make time available every Tuesday evening for this important work,” North Montgomery Superintendent Colleen Moran said.
Once certified, educators are better able to address brain-development research and use it in the classroom. Training also helps teachers address adversity, emotional-social and cognitive development are disrupted by trauma.
Graduate tuition provided by Lilly Counseling and North Central Health Services grant funds. Graduates are members of each Montgomery County school district’s social- and emotional-learning teams.
