Now that school is remote, are you having to closely monitor your child's online learning?  Is your bright and capable child having issues with missing assignments, incomplete work, or motivation?  You are not alone!  In our current state of virtual learning, our kids are required to be more independent than ever, leaving parents to fill in the gaps for missing Executive Function skills. 
In this parent information session, we will be exploring the “function” of Executive Function, and learn about what underlying skills may be lacking when kids struggle with Executive Function, despite a student’s intelligence and a parent’s best efforts AND how to develop these skills.

Have specific questions about your child's Executive Function Skills (or lack thereof)?  You can respond to your confirmation email with your questions or ask questions during the meeting using the "chat" feature.

Free resource downloads that will be discussed during the presentation:
