Meet Your Trainers:
Joshua MacNeill, M.Ed.
Director of NeuroLogic Initiative
Josh began his Lakeside career as a teacher where he quickly began adapting trauma informed strategies into his classroom. He realized how important this approach was, and saw amazing improvements in his students. Because of Josh’s success both in his classroom and in communicating trauma informed educational practices, he began to get many requests to consult and train others, which propelled him to become the Director of Lakeside’s NeuroLogic Initiative.
In addition to earning his Masters in Multicultural Education, Josh has completed The Child Trauma Academy’s Neurosequential Model of Education training program. He has presented at regional, state, national and international conferences and now offers training and consultation for schools and individuals throughout the United States and abroad. Josh has written a book filled with activities for classroom teachers that help regulate each level of the brain.
