Building Better Brains: Fostering Academic Success through Developing Executive Functioning Skills (Bay Area)
How do we meet students where they are and help them develop essential executive functioning skills? In this dynamic and interactive workshop designed for K-12 teachers, administrators and school counselors, participants will learn how and why executive functioning skills are critical to the learning process for all students, especially for kids learning disabilities, ADHD and high functioning autism.
Participants will also:
- Develop a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with learning differences.
- Learn how stress and anxiety impact students’ executive functioning skills and thus their academic performance and social relationships.
- Gain innovative tools to improve student focus, organization, planning and motivation.
- Apply their learning to their specific learning environments.
Join us for this unique opportunity to gain practical strategies for identifying and nurturing cognitive strengths in your students and help them overcome daily challenges.
