New Directions in Student Services: Executive Functioning in the School and Home

January 18, 2019 8:00-9:00 a.m. in Rose Crown

We are thrilled to welcome Heidi Hamernik, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years experience, to present to our families for the third of our Student Services parent series. Dr. Hamernik currently owns a private practice that is dedicated to pediatric and adolescent individual and family therapies as well as pediatric neuropsychological testing. She has had a wide variety of occupational experiences with varied populations within inpatient and outpatient private and community settings. Dr. Hamernik is an active presenter to schools and organizations throughout her private practice community on topics related to autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, attention disorders, behavior regulation, and parenting.

During this workshop, you will learn what it may feel like in the day of a child who is experiencing executive function challenges. This workshop will focus on what is meant by executive functioning and will outline typically-expected executive function skills from pre-school to middle school and beyond. We will also learn a basic framework for understanding and managing executive functioning within the home environment.
