PAMI2018 Breakfast Kickoff
Dr. Lori Desautels’ passion is to integrate Educational Neuroscience principles and strategies into classrooms throughout the world. She helps students and teachers learn collectively about their own neuro-anatomy, and how their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors are intimately connected to their mind and heart, thus becoming aware of, and better engaged with, their Emotional, Social, and Cognitive Health and well-being.
As a result of this passion, she founded the Educational Neuroscience Symposium, now in its 7th year at Butler Univeristy. Because of her work, Lori has been able to attract the foremost experts in the field of educational neuroscience, trauma, and adversity, growing the conference from 60 participants to over 400.
