Austin ISD School Counselors create Brain Labs to support students. The brain labs are based on concepts from Dr. Perry's Neurosequential Model in Education. Students practice regulation skills, learn about their brains, and change their brain states.
This tour features Counselor Amy Wells at Becker Elementary in Austin, TX. We are grateful for the generous support provided by: Tapestry Foundation, Buena Vista Foundation, Klein Foundation, St. David's Foundation, Powell Foundation, Episcopal Health Foundation and the Austin Ed Fund.
