Does your child leave assignments until the last minute, forget to bring work home, or have trouble completing long-term assignments?  Chronic issues with organizing schoolwork, anticipating deadlines, managing time or generally not working to potential can indicate problems with Executive Functions, the set of neurological capabilities that enable individuals to plan for, and then achieve, their goals. Executive Function development begins in infancy and continues into adulthood. Oftentimes, however, normal development does not coincide with academic and social requirements creating frustration for all involved. Participants will understand specific behaviors and techniques that will foster Executive Functions skills in their children.
