Following our successful presentation during the Chinese Children Book Fair, The Quirky Kid was invited to present at the 2016 London Book Fair.

We are looking forward to sharing our experience and insight into working with children with our colleagues in London. Our presentation is part of the Insights seminar programme comprises over 200 seminars and events, and takes place throughout the full three days of the Fair. Seminars are open to all visitors on a first-come-first-served basis, and are one hour in duration, so make sure to register.

Dr Kimberley O'Brien and Leonardo Rocker, MA will be presenting on developing and publishing social and emotional resources for classrooms and clinics.

The presentation will summarise Quirky Kid's experience in developing SEL tools.

Supporting children's Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in the school setting is a challenging task for educators and school counsellors. Research shows students with well-developed social and emotional skills perform better academically, have improved attitudes, less negative behaviours and reduced emotional distress (www.casel.org).

Engaging, evidence-based SEL resources for children are paramount for improved student outcomes. Few programs combine the tools and techniques used in the clinic setting with the school curriculum. This seminar will discuss the process of developing and implementing SEL resources for schools and introduce the Quirky Kid range of materials used in clinics and classrooms around the world.
