Support Executive Function

October 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Lunch and Learn Event with Kate Barrett

Support Executive Function

Tuesday, October 25th from Noon to 1 pm via Zoom

Executive functions drive the brain’s ability to select, plan and execute tasks from start to finish. Our ability to plan, organize, prioritize, manage time, sustain effort, move between tasks, manage frustration tolerance and use our working memory to successfully complete tasks are all pieces of the decision-making process. When our students lag in these critical skill sets, their performance does not always match our expectations.

 Come learn how executive function impacts performance both academically and in life. Approaching our students with a developmental mindset can reframe expectations for parents and teachers, allowing space for students to collaborate on meaningful supports and skill-building to address academic and emotional challenges. Attendees will walk away with ideas and guides for building structures that address common organizational challenges for students struggling to stay on track.

This is a free event, but registration is needed.
