Montessori for dementia and ageing gives elders the opportunity to grow, engage, love—and most importantly, live.   Dr. Montessori wrote that “joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul.” Case study examples, research data, videos, and interactive exercises will be used to illustrate how the Montessori philosophy helps elders thrive.  In addition, the speaker, Jennifer Brush, MA, CCC/SLP, will review the educational opportunities and processes available to professionals who wish to undertake this important work.
