Walk away with visual strategies and hands-on techniques that:
- Support self-management in regulating behavior, focus and energy
- Improve motivation, recall, organization and planning
- Increase communication skills and develop appropriate social skills
- Support the way information is received and retained in long-term memory
Do you work with children and adolescents who struggle paying attention, are severely disorganized, have difficulty making transitions and are unable to make plans? They repeatedly act out and meltdown—seemingly unaware of the consequences of their behavior. They frequently get placed in timeout or sent to the principal’s office—missing out on typical childhood experiences in school, on the playground and with their families. These children have Executive Functioning (EF) deficits.
The good news is that EF can be taught!
Watch this intensive workshop and learn to strengthen the neuro connections in children and apply evidence-based metacognitive and self-regulation visual strategies and hands-on techniques to improve:
- Working Memory
- Inhibitory Control
- Mental Flexibility
- Goal Setting
- Time Management
- Task Initiation
- Executive Attention
- Task Persistence
- Emotional Control
- Social skills
Through video case studies, visual demonstrations of strategies and dynamic discussions, you will learn how to implement these strategies tomorrow morning at school, during therapy or counseling, home and community.
