Presentation Speaker:  Evan Shelton
Center for Applied Research in Dementia

Topic: The Montessori-Based Approach to Engagement and Activities Programming
In this presentation, participants will learn how the principles of Montessori education apply to individuals living with dementia and related disabilities. As an advocate for children, Dr. Maria Montessori recognized the human desire for engagement in purposeful activities, and the need for respect, dignity, and equality in our interactions as leaders and educators. As professionals in Senior Living, we can infuse these same values into our work by understanding and building upon a person's remaining strengths, preparing the environment with cognitive "ramps" to enable individuals to be successful at a task, and maximizing choice and independence for participants. 

Networking: After the presentation, members should be prepared to share an activity idea or resource with the group. 

Date: 05/11/2023 (Thu.)

Time: 11:00am - 2:00pm EST
