Executive Functions: Critical Skills that Schools Don’t Teach

By Thinking Outside the Classroom: An Introduction to the Mindset and Toolkit for Parents of K-12 Students

Is homework a nightly struggle? Does your child have trouble organizing materials, managing time or producing work? Is your child’s academic performance meeting his/her potential? Do you want to learn about your role in your child’s executive function development?

In this talk, Senior Coach and Supervisor Jackie Stachel will explain executive functions, their development and how challenges with them impact students’ academic outcomes. A hierarchy of executive functions will be examined as a pathway to productivity.

What sets the stage for overcoming executive function difficulties? How do we foster growth and change?

These concerns will be discussed, as will some specific tools that can facilitate change in students with executive function challenges. Finally, the parents’ role in the process of executive function growth is considered, with an eye toward the goal of students developing autonomy and ownership of their academic performance.

When:   7:00 - 9:00pm, Wednesday, September 19th
