Misophonia Education For Educators

We will be providing workshops for educators. This can include teachers, paraprofessionals, special needs teachers, school administration, school counselors and otherwise interested individuals from an educational standpoint.

 

Things you should know as an educator:

  • Misophonia is real, and it is not psychological (it is neurophysiological).
  • Students are not “over-reacting” to sounds/stimuli, they are having a physiological fight/flight response.
  • Students are not using misophonia as a way to “control” the classroom or exert power.
  • Helping students with misophonia is challenging, but there are options available.
  • Students avoiding the classroom (ie. frequent bathroom breaks etc) with misophonia are not just trying to slack off, they likely need time to calm down (reset their nervous system to handle stimuli).

We will be providing workshops, e-conferences and events to help educators learn to effectively manage misophonia.

 

These events will provide:

  • A basic understanding of misophonia including the brain basis and the highlights of accurate scientific research on misophonia.
  • Practical advice for a classroom setting for Elementary to High School as well as special considerations for College.
  • Suggested accommodations for students with misophonia in a classroom environment.
  • Coping skills for students with misophonia.
