TIES 2019 Therapy in Educational Settings Conference

Dr. Linda Bone - Keynote Thursday, April 4, 2019

Rich Brain: Poor Brain: Change the Therapy Game is a cutting-edge keynote based on the book by popular author Dr. Linda Karges-Bone, a six-time National Title 1 presenter. Can we change the outcomes for the brains and minds of children who live in poverty by simply treating them as if they are wealthy? Dr. Bone shares the fascinating research on how cortisol affects the brains and bodies of children and then "flips the equation". Boldly "borrowing" from the programming found in wealthy, highly successful schools and programs, Dr. Bone proposes the LEAP model, a way to "replicate" rich brain experiences with few or no resources. In particular, this keynote infuses a sense of positivism and wonder in the minds of participants. Instead of the typical negative, frustrating tone of "It isn't fair" ...Dr. Bone's session will turn the tables and ask "Why not make it fair?"
