Description

Do you know these kids? They have messy backpacks. Their desks are filled with crumpled papers and broken pencils. They seem disorganized. Often they have trouble starting or finishing tasks. They may have difficulty socially with their peers. They forget and lose things. They have trouble planning. They may seem disengaged or lazy. They have trouble following directions. They have learning differences or attention issues. This workshop will address the main characteristics of Executive Function difficulties based on the best practices being used and what neuroscience is finding out. How do these difficulties affect schoolwork, homework, social-emotional development and how can they be specifically addressed?

 The presenter will provide the “nuts and bolts” of recognizing and assisting EF issues such as planning, organizing, prioritizing, attention and cognitive functions. The presenter’s decades of experience in the fields of Learning Disabilities, Literacy and Language, and Social-Emotional Development provide the backdrop to this workshop. Practical strategies and current issues will be addressed and resources will be provided and several short videos will be used to clarify this area of intervention. Resources will be provided as well as exposure to currently available curriculum ideas. This workshop will focus on Pre K-Grade 5, but the concepts, resources and methodologies can be easily applied to students through Grade 12.
