Free Educational Workshop for Parents and Teachers of Children with Special Needs in Waltham

Attention! Parents of children who struggle with ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiance, OCD, Anxiety, are on the Autistic Spectrum or have other special needs.

Attend a free community workshop at the Waltham Public Library on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00-8:30pm, at 735 Main Street, Waltham.

After standing room only at Dedham, The Foundation for Wellness Professionals, a 17 year-old, worldwide non-profit organization that promotes wellness and disease prevention programs, presents a free community workshop on Brain Mapping and Drug Free Approaches to ADD and Autism.

Dr. Ross is a Licensed Psychologist with extensive experience in biofeedback treatment, cognitive and behavioral therapy, and behavioral medicine. She received training in EEG assessment from Dr. K.H. Wong, of Children's Hospital Medical Center Boston and has an extensive background in the treatment of individuals with neuropsychiatric and neurobehavioral challenges.

Research has uncovered a brain mapping technique that allows the identification and treatment of educational and behavioral difficulties when nearly every other technique has failed. This is a research based, pain and drug free procedure that pinpoints discordant rhythms in the brain. Once identified, these discordant rhythms can be improved with biofeedback applications. Biofeedback improves the imbalance and promotes healthy brain function. The result is a reduction or even elimination of symptoms.

Come for this free educational session and see before and after brain images of children with remarkable results and hear about the dramatic improvements these children have experienced.

Diving Deep: Uncovering Hidden Insights through User Interviews with Susan Mercer
Diving Deep: Uncovering Hidden Insights through User Interviews Susan Mercer, Experience Research Director, Mad*Pow   Abstract User interviews are a great technique for getting to know your target audience. However, sometimes people don’t feel comfortable answering a researcher’s questions with complete honesty. Other times they may not know exactly how to articulate what they need, want, or feel. We will examine findings from psychology and market research to understand techniques for interviews to help you uncover insights beyond people's surficial answers. We’ll explore conversation theory, projective techniques such as image associations, collaging, sentence completion, and others to uncover hidden, actionable insights to fuel your designs.   About Susan   After starting a career in geophysics, Susan discovered that she enjoyed visually communicating her data more than she enjoyed researching the science. She has over 20 years of expertise in user experience, working both as a consultant and in-house designer and researcher. She has several years of experience in conducting user research, using a diverse set of research methods from contextual inquiry to ethnography to collaging across industries. Susan has her MS in Human Factors in Information Design at Bentley University, and is now an Adjunct Professor in that program and an Experience Research Director at Mad*Pow in Boston.   Evening Schedule 6:30 – 7:00 Networking over pizza and beverages 7:00 – 8:30 Meeting 8:30 – 9:00 CHI Dessert and more networking! Sponsors Constant Contact is hosting us and providing food. Mad*Pow is sponsoring dessert.

WORKSHOP: Create & Share a One Minute Promotional Video in Fifteen Minutes!
Inbound Marketing, often referred to as "content marketing," is promoting your business or nonprofit by creating interesting blogs, podcasts, eBooks, eNewsletters and, of course, VIDEO to attract customers or visitors. From Wikipedia: "Inbound marketing refers to marketing activities that bring vistors in, rather than marketers having to go out and get prospects' attention.... In contrast, buying attention, cold calling, direct paper mail, radio, TV advertisements, sales flyers, spam, telemarketing, and traditional advertising are considered 'outbound marketing.'" - And we know Outbound Marketing is often very expensive and, at least as often, not very effective. Video is arguably the most compelling marketing medium. And most of us carry very powerful smartphones with us throughout our daily life. In this workshop you will learn how to use your smartphone to capture still and moving pictures, add some narration, and upload a finished one minute video to YouTube that takes a mere 15 minutes to produce, start-to-finish! This is a hands-on workshop that is divided into three sections: In the first section, the workshop leader, Bob Perry, will briefly discuss inbound marketing and video’s importance in that paradigm, and then demonstrate, start-to-finish, how to create and share a one-minute video in just 15 minutes. In Section 2, attendees will create and share their own sample one-minute promotional videos, with coaching from Bob. Then, in Section 3, all of the videos created in Section 2 will be viewed and evaluated by the the group. Although this workshop will be taught using an iPhone, the principles and methods covered in this workshop will translate well to the Android platform with similar Apps installed. All workshop attendees should bring their smartphones! It is recommended that iPhone users have iMovie and YouTube apps installed. (And, yes, tablet users: You’re welcome to bring your iPads or Android tablets if you like!). This workshop will take place from 5:30pm to 7:00pm on Thursday evening, February 2, 2016 at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation located at 154 Moody Street, Waltham. This workshop is strictly limited to 12 participants. This Workshop is led by Bob Perry, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of Waltham Local First, and Executive Director of the Charles River Museum.

Don't miss out! Leading THE Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe Agilist Certification) - Waltham MA
This is one train you really want to board - the Scaled Agile release train... =========================================================== WHO -  you and anyone who wants to learn how to deliver value from Agile teams working together WHY - world of product delivery is changing and we need to adapt WHAT - proven, experience based, method for product delivery of Scaled Agile HOW - upbeat, workshop, hands on delivery led by Michael - renowned  keynote presenter and facilitator WHEN - See above ============================================================   This two-day SAFe certification course will show you how to successfully scale Agile principals across your organization by utilizing Lean thinking practices and Product Development Flow techniques.   Scale Agile Across Multiple Teams or the Enterprise For years, Agile teams have been able to develop higher-quality products at a faster rate by utilizing techniques that help them respond to change. This works great in smaller organizations where individual teams can focus on individual pieces of the product, but it can be hard to scale these benefits across a portfolio of products because different teams are focused solely on their own goals. This misalignment of team, program and portfolio is often the obstacle that keeps organizations from fully harnessing the power of Agile. Defining an overall organizational portfolio vision and aligning each team's goals can help you further enhance the value of Agile practices. Through Lean Product Development and Flow, this SAFe certification course will show you how to create longer programs, the Agile Release Trains, where groups of Agile teams work together to optimize quality and velocity to deliver even greater value for their stakeholders.   What is the Scaled Agile Framework? The Scaled Agile Framework (or SAFe) is a guide to aligning Agile development throughout an organization. Most organizations focus their Agile development efforts at the team level, first starting with a pilot team and later transitioning individual teams one at a time. Unfortunately, this method fails to fully integrate each team's efforts with the larger stakeholder need. The Scaled Agile Framework gives you proven techniques to align these teams to work at the larger program level, and ultimately how to align multiple programs into a portfolio that maximizes shareholder value.   In this SAFe Certification Course You will learn: How to lead an enterprise Agile transformation; To apply Lean thinking techniques at the Team, Program and Portfolio levels; To apply Lean, Agile and Product Development Flow principles to improve productivity, employee engagement, time to market and quality; How to infuse Agile into your entire organization – not just your IT department; How to create Agile Release Trains that align the efforts of Agile and non-Agile teams to create greater stakeholder value; To encourage collaboration across all the layers of your organization to enable teams to deliver complex cross-functional features in 10-12 week increment; To improve the communication and focus of your organization’s Agile implementation;   Become a Certified Scaled Agile Framework Agilist The Leading Scaled Agile Framework course is your first step towards earning your Scaled Agile Framework Agilist (SA) certification. Other pre-requisites include more than five years of experience in product development, testing, business analysis, product or project management as well as experience in Scrum.   Upon taking the two-day Scaled Agile Framework Course, you are eligible to complete the SAFe certification exam to earn your SAFe Agilist (SA) certification. The cost of the exam is included in your course tuition. SAFe certification exam questions center around: Lean Thinking Agile Development principles SAFe ScrumXP Agile Release Trains Agile Portfolio Management Agile Architecture Scaling Leadership   As more and more organizations look to scale Agile, be one of the select group of professionals who have a SAFe certification to back-up their hands-on experience.

Over the course of eight sessions, participants will work with wood, metal, electronics, and basic programmable components, assisted by experienced craftsmen and artists, repurposing items obtained by delving into architectural salvage and other treasure troves. Designers, tinkerers, inventors, detail-lovers, and big thinkers are all needed in this collaborative endeavor, the results of which will be displayed at the Museum and highlighted at both the Cambridge Science Festival and Watch City Steampunk Festival. What is Steampunkinetics®? Built on the foundational principles of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), it brings in the aesthetics and design of Art to get STEAM, and the fun of combining historical understanding with imagined worlds to get Steampunk. Add to that the cooperative creation of a dynamic contraption and you get Steampunkinetics®.  Developed by Steampunk guru Bruce Rosenbaum in collaboration with Prof. Ashleigh Hillier at UMass Lowell, the Steampunkinetics® program now comes to the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation, the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. The program will draw upon the Museum’s storied collection and unique history as sources of inspiration, exploring its themes through a Steampunk lens. Meets:  8 Sundays 2:30-5:30pm January 10 - March 6, 2016 (skipping February 14th) Participants: Open to ages 14 and up. To be most effective, the program needs a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 participants.  Cost: $290, which includes a $50 materials fee ($20 discount available for Museum members).

Sleep Conversation: I Want My Baby to Nap
Sleep is one of most talked about concerns of parents with babies. We want our babies to sleep so they get the rest they need to grow and develop and not be overtired. And we want them to sleep so that we, too, get the rest we need to function during the day and take care of ourselves and our families. And during the day, an often overtired parent relies on a baby’s nap to rest, get work done, straighten up, or practice a little self-care. But daytime sleep is confusing. It can be elusive, changeable, and frustrating. Come share your concerns, ideas, and strategies with other parents and a member of our sleep consultation team.

Goethe in Song and Opera: A Master Set to Music
In collaboration with Brandeis University, in Rapaporte Treasure Hall, Goldfarb Library Free and open to the public: RSVP at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1sl0WS22XOtJgUIXBUeSlI2vvqPMy3Xd2IqMDoKmSlSo/viewform At the age of only twenty-five, Goethe took the literary and cultural community by storm with the publication of his semi-autobiographical novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther. His storied career left a legacy of poetry, drama, novels, and much more, and inspired countless artists and musicians to create their own seminal works. Brandeis University and Boston Lyric Opera team up to explore Goethe’s work in song and opera, set by composers such as Mozart, Schubert, Berlioz, and more. BLO artists join the stage in performance of a few of these classics, including selections from Massenet’s opera Werther, the story that launched Goethe’s career, which will be performed by BLO in a new production, March 11–20, 2016.
