Session 1: Late, Lost and Unprepared: Effective Strategies for Teaching Self-Management and Organizational Skills to Students with Executive Function Deficits
Students who struggle with deficits in Executive Functioning may exhibit difficulties at home with organization, remembering homework, and initiating or completing tasks. In school, they may have difficulty memorizing facts, writing essays or reports, working complex math problems, completing long-term projects, or being on time.
Executive Functioning deficits don’t have to cause frustration, disappointment and defeat in your child’s life – or in yours. There are some very specific and effective ways to help students develop built-in supports and routines to help compensate for deficits in organizational skills.
Please join us for a panel discussion on building effective strategies for assisting students who struggle with organization, time, and self-management skills. Panelists include Dr. Ethan Schafer, Clinical Psychologist; Jason Culp, Head of Upper School; and Dianne Wilson, Learning Resource Center Coordinator. Ample time for individual questions will be provided.
