Noon to 1:30 p.m.
Children and teens with Executive Function deficits have difficulties managing time and space constructively; setting goals appropriately; controlling emotional and behavioral impulses; prioritizing; sustaining attention; planning and organizing; starting tasks and following through; self-regulating; being flexible; and making mature judgments regarding right & wrong and cause & effect.
During this webinar, Dawn Matera, EdD, will explain, in readily understandable terms, the complex topics of executive function and working memory– crucial aspects of a child’s ability to be successful in school and with everyday tasks– with an emphasis on how parents can assist their children in developing and implementing helpful strategies.
