Neuroeducational Workshops

Finally. Professional Learning workshops offering practical language, productive responses and immediate applications for use at school, home, work and beyond.


While science has proven that stress is one of the biggest inhibitors to learning, relationships, behavior, well-being and performance, relatively few educators, parents, coaches and business leaders are using this knowledge to their advantage.

Our interactive workshops seize findings from the science of learning to decrease stress and maximize the brain’s “sweet spot” to boost focus, self-awareness, executive function, collaboration, productivity and resilience.

Note: Workshops can be customized and range from 90 minutes to 5 hours (offered on-site or virtually).

Current Workshops

Practical Language and Strategies to Build Executive Function and Decrease Anxiety

Best for Educators, Counselors and Parents

With the continued climb in anxiety in children (over 30% of students), teachers and students need to be aware of the relationship between anxiety and executive function.

In moments of high stress, executive function can be hijacked, causing students to forget directions, have trouble getting started on a task or stick with it when it gets challenging.

In this interactive workshop, you’ll be empowered with:

  • an understanding of anxiety and executive function
  • practical language to talk about anxiety and executive function
  • productive responses to decrease anxiety and build executive function, particularly how to improve organization, transitions, routines, self-monitoring, self-regulating and mental flexibility—all without sacrificing too much instructional time

Learn how to help your students, particularly those with anxiety, ADHD or learning challenges become less stressed and more efficient, autonomous and productive learners.

When Anxiety Goes Up, Learning and Performance Go Down

Most Popular (for all audiences)

With the spike in anxiety, kids and adults need to be equipped with key information and quick strategies to decrease stress and face anxiety-provoking situations. When you give anxiety what it needs—not what it wants—it boosts attention, focus, productivity and problem-solving skills, so you and those around you can stress less, think better and achieve more! 

Using A.B.C. Worry Free as a reference tool, we will address misunderstandings about anxiety and learn:

  • How anxiety works
  • Patterns of anxiety and how to interrupt them
  • An actionable strategy to manage anxiety/stressors
  • Communication, accommodation and skill building tips for the classroom and beyond
From Executive Dysfunction to Executive Function: Developing Metacognitive, Empowered Learners

Best for Educators, Counselors and Parents

Looking for ways to help disorganized, easily distracted students become more efficient and productive? How about those who have difficulty getting started, fall apart when they encounter obstacles, or avoid challenges?

In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to help students take more ownership of their learning. You’ll be empowered with quick strategies that decrease stress and build underdeveloped skill sets and mindsets vital to learning and success in school, relationships, jobs and life—all without sacrificing too much instructional time. We will address key information about the brain and the impact of stress on executive function as well as how to support students with transitions, routines and skills related to goal setting, organization, time management, self-monitoring, cognitive flexibility, and growth mindset self-talk.

Power Learning: Brain-Friendly Lesson Design and “Low Mistake Fear” Retrieval Strategies to Boost Engagement, Comprehension and Critical Thinking

Best for Educators, Counselors and Parents

Learning starts with the brain, and the moment of engagement is a critical part of the learning process. Full of practical applications, this interactive workshop empowers you with ways to incorporate the science of learning and more of “what the brain likes” into your lessons. You’ll discover how to cultivate a better learning environment, decrease anxiety and get “more” out of your students. You’ll also learn how to use quick, “low stress” learning-focused retrieval strategies to maximize student engagement, participation and retention while supporting content learning and critical thinking.

Practical Tips and Strategies to Manage Stress and Achieve Peak Performance

Best for corporations and organizations 

The impact of stress has far-reaching consequences, affecting ability, memory, executive function, behavior, relationships, receptivity to feedback and performance. Whether you’re dealing with stress in school, at home, in social interactions or at work, you’ll learn empowering ways to manage worried thoughts, difficult emotions and physical sensations. This interactive workshop will address the following topics:

  • How the stress response works and how to interrupt it
  • How stress impacts learning, memory, executive function, behavior, relationships, performance and receptivity to feedback
  • How to identify the brain’s “sweet spot” and “tipping point”
  • How to use the ABC Strategy to manage stress and boost performance
  • What to be aware of regarding Zoom fatigue/virtual calls
AMMPE Skills Builder

Best for Athletes

Much attention is often given to an athlete’s physical development, with relatively little emphasis on the brain’s role in reaching peak performance. Yet, peak performance begins with the brain! 

The AMMPE Skills Builder incorporates cutting edge brain research into practical applications that can be easily integrated into practices and games. Coaches and student athletes are equipped with a process to decrease stress, maximize brain capacity and build underdeveloped skill sets and mindsets needed to gain an edge over the competition. 

Using recent Neuroscience findings about the effect of stress on the brain’s ability to think, learn and perform, we empower coaches and student athletes with an innovative process to identify barriers getting in the way of peak performance, so they can elevate their ability to reach goals, overcome obstacles and take their game to the next level while building eight essential skills for optimal success:

  • Priority Setting and Organizing
  • Sharpening Attention and Focus
  • Increasing Memory Capacity
  • Building Effective Communication and Collaboration
  • Increasing Mental Flexibility to Adjust Focus and Perspective
  • Boosting Self Control
  • Self Monitoring Progress
  • Establishing a Growth Mindset

Learning how to use the brain to its potential can increase performance and make the difference between maintaining one’s position on a team, winning and losing a game, making it to the postseason or succeeding in school, relationships, jobs and the big game of life.

This is the first Professional Development workshop that teachers asked for more! Informative, engaging and very enjoyable.

- Middle/High School Administrator

Noel was a wonderful presenter! The workshop was extremely informative and her resources will be really helpful when the school year begins!

M.K. Conway, Teacher

Noel’s workshop was so fantastic for an educator—the strategies, the brain science behind the behaviors, resources, what to do and how to build executive function, just to name a few. I will also be sharing this information with parents and coaches who work with students. Thank you!

Sue M.S., Chairman of Faculty Support Committee

I learned many effective strategies to manage behaviors which occur at the intersection of anxiety and executive function such as reactions triggered by cognitive overload and how stress limits access to executive function. I became mindful of language and coping skills to lessen anxiety in my classroom.
