What Kids Need to Succeed: Executive Functions and Homework

A Special Presentation by NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus and Dr. Bonnie Singer, CEO of Architects for Learning

After a long day at school, even the most organized and capable students may find it challenging to settle down, finish their homework and get it to where it needs to go.

Parents face the daunting task of providing support while attempting to determine what actually helps their children succeed.

In this complimentary talk, Drs. Helmus and Singer will discuss the ways in which executive functions influence students’ ability to tackle their homework, introduce an effective model for helping students of all ages manage it successfully, and explore how parents can nurture their children’s planning, organization, and self-monitoring skills so necessary for long-term academic success.

When:    7:00 – 9:00pm, Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Where:   Architects for Learning
                    160 Gould Street, Suite 203
