Play • 45 min

In this episode, Stephanie and Meredith sit down with the Keynote Speaker from The Parish School’s 2022 Giving Voice to Children Luncheon, Greg Santucci. Throughout the episode Greg discusses ways to see beyond a child’s behavior by supporting their underlying sensory and safety needs at home and in the classroom. Greg uses specific examples from his life and clinical experiences to illustrate the importance of being curious about a child’s sensory needs to support their learning potential. He also discusses how his focus goes beyond in the moment changes to the goal of empowering children to be resilient and successful. Greg’s biggest takeaway is that these changes start with us- the adults teaching and caring for our children!
