Building better brains: How improving executive functioning skills fosters academic success
Are you tired of struggling with your child or teen over school, homework or chores? Fostering progress at school means sharpening kids' executive functioning skills. In this dynamic and interactive presentation based on current research about the developing brain and examples from students themselves, Dr. Saline will show you how and why executive functioning skills are critical to the learning process.
With a deeper understanding of these skills, you’ll be able to create more effective strategies to nurture cognitive strengths and overcome daily challenges. Dr. Saline will also address the ways that stress and anxiety affect students, their academic performance and social relationships. You will walk away with easy, practical tools to improve organization, planning and follow-through.
