Dear All,

Teachers’ Resource Centre has initiated a series of talks from January 2016 that focus on issues around educational pedagogy, understanding the IB system, successful interventions in school management, special needs and inclusive education. These talks are delivered by speakers with an educational background, enriched by valuable experience in their relevant field. The talk sessions are followed by a question-answer session to enhance the value of the discussion for all the participants.

The ages 11 through 14 years are often referred to as early adolescence. These years are an exciting time of many varied changes. The young child experiences rapid physical growth and also starts to feel and think in more mature ways. But this can be a confusing time for both children and caregivers.

This talk session provides an overview of the developmental changes and provides strategies to meet the needs and challenges of early adolescence.

The main objectives of the interactive talk session are to:
• provide an understanding of the growth and developmental changes for early adolescence
• learn about the early adolescent brain development and effect on mood and Behaviour
• identify the basic needs and challenges faced by the early adolescent
• gain tips to help child through early adolescence years
