Executive Functioning 101 – Executive functioning skills are critical to students’ success, and parents can help develop them.
On Tuesday, March 15th I’ll be honored to offer a webinar fundraiser for Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities. For $10, you can either join live or watch this executive functioning overview at your leisure for two weeks following the original event.
What to expect
I will discuss how success in education requires that students master much more than content; they must also hone skills such as organization, time management, and effective studying. These fundamental abilities fall under the umbrella of “executive functioning”, a set of skills that enable students to focus, plan, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks. By working with students on executive functioning, we help them fulfill their potential in school and set them up for success in academic, entrepreneurial, or personal pursuits. I will discuss how executive functioning skills and executive functioning coaching can help students. In addition, I will give you tools to support your child in getting started, maintaining motivation, and working with their personal attention spans.
