The workshop is held by Wolfgang Maier
Wolfgang Maier, remedial teacher and neuropsychologist, moves in different disciplines. In public, vocational and public schools, he helps children, adolescents, their teachers and families to understand the symptoms of a limitation or behavioural disorder and looks for ways to ensure that the children are not put at a disadvantage in their school and professional environment. Based on his experience as a Montessori teacher, he has realised that the Montessori system can help children with special needs if multimodal therapy approaches are used in parallel. He uses behavioural therapy measures as well as body-centred methods, including bio/neurofeedback. Since the topic of media is present in everyday family life, Mr Maier outlines in a “6-step plan for successful media education” how parents can take concrete action in everyday life
