Executive Functioning: October 18, 2019 from 8:30am to 4pm -- Lunch will be included

Teachers have all worked with students who have executive function skill deficits. Some skill deficits might include: inability to start in-class assignments, tendency to lose things, inclination to make impulsive remarks, tendency to be late, etc.

This training will provide dozens of proven, effective and research driven strategies for working with students who are lacking in the executive function skills of organization, time management, emotional regulation, attention and memory. These practical ideas improve instruction and are easy to implement, while also providing strategies that struggling students can use throughout their lifetime.
