Executive function skills virtual workshop: 10/21/2020 at 6:30pm

Executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, study skills, time management, goal-setting, planning) allow students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better poised to achieve their full potential. Executive function issues may make learning and other everyday tasks difficult for kids. They may have trouble with planning, self control, impulse control and organization.
