Teach Children to Manage their Time, Space and Materials (and Keep their Emotions in Check)
Executive function skills refer to the mental skills we use to pay attention, to organize and plan tasks and materials, to start tasks and stay focused on them, to manage emotions and be flexible, and to keep track of what we are doing. These skills can impact students at home, school and in social situations.
In this practical strategies seminar parents and professionals will develop a solid understanding of what the executive function skills are and how they impact a student’s academic and personal performance.
The presenter is Sarah Ward, M.S., CCC/SLP, a Co-Director of Cognitive Connections. Her bio includes:
