Module 4: Whole child - whole brain lens

Purpose: The whole child- whole brain lens helps us zoom out and take a big picture view of our student’s complex needs and suggests ways to support them to feel safe, secure, connected and confident at school.

Figuring out what’s going on for students with complex learning needs is a challenging task. They can’t always tell us and there are many factors at play.


To get started: Download the Foundations for Learning framework poster

The Foundations for Learning Framework provides a tool to consider the internal world of our students from a whole person – whole brain perspective.
