What members learned from this tutorial

Various strategies for working memory, flexible thinking and self-regulation e.g. flexible thinking scenarios; ask a friend to play with you at lunch and they say no - list two things you can say. Loved the ideas from other attendees too. - Laurie QLD

It’s important to teach children to look at problems from many angles and that if one thing doesn’t work then there is always another way to approach it. We are facilitators in their learning process. - Rita NSW
