An Introduction to Executive Functioning Skills for Parents & Middle and High School Students
Does your teen have difficulty keeping track of time, getting started on homework, or completing projects? Are you frequently dealing with lost papers, procrastination, chronic lateness, perpetual stress, conflicts? If you and your teen are frustrated with these and other challenges and tired of struggling, join us for an interactive workshop presentation.
We will look briefly at brain development and see how unrealistic expectations can be behind some school and family struggles, especially in the area of time management. Together we will discover how understanding executive functioning skills is a key to effectively helping students become more successful learners.
We will take some of the mystery out of executive functions by discussing twelve of them in detail, helping you identify your, and your teen’s, areas of strength and where you each have challenges. We’ll examine some tools and strategies to compensate for executive functioning skills that are weak or not fully developed.
Presenters: Neil and Linda Swanson, Credentialed ADHD Coaches from Warrenton, VA
