Free Talk in Watertown Thursday, May 14th: Bright Kids Who Can’t Keep Up

From the Watertown SEPAC

April 28, 2015

Join the Watertown SEPAC on Thursday, May 14th at 7:00pm to hear Dr. Ellen Braaten talk about her new book, "Bright Kids Who Can't Keep Up: Help Your Child Overcome Slow Processing Speed and Succeed in a Fast-Paced World."

Do you find yourself constantly asking your child to "pick up the pace"? Does he or she seem to take longer than others to get stuff done—whether completing homework, responding when spoken to, or getting dressed and ready in the morning? Dr. Braaten has worked with thousands of kids and teens who struggle with an area of cognitive functioning called "processing speed," and who are often mislabeled as lazy or unmotivated.

Learn how to obtain needed support at school, what to expect from a professional evaluation, and how you can make daily routines more efficient—while promoting your child's social and emotional well-being.

When:   7:00pm Thursday May 14, 2015

Where: Cunniff School Library, 246 Warren Street, Watertown

This presentation is free and open to the public. Childcare is available.
