I will be putting on a free seminar at the end of the month related to Executive Functioning and wanted to invite my readers, and ask you to spread the word to those who you think could benefit from this information:
Executive Functioning: Strategies to Keep Your Child Organized and Yourself Sane
Do you have a child or student who struggles with impulse control, getting started on homework/projects, organization of their things and/or knowing when their behavior is getting out of control? Do you hear yourself repeating “please just start working on____” or “that is not a clean bedroom/backpack/desk!” or even “What do you mean you lost___?” You know they are smart, but does the child or student often appear to be “lazy” or “lacking motivation”? They may be struggling with Executive Functioning, a higher order brain process that may not be developed in many individuals including, but not limited to, those with Asperger’s, High Functioning Autism, ADHD and OCD diagnoses. But don’t be discouraged! Come learn what to look for, why these individuals do the things they do and how you can help them! This FREE Seminar will explain the science behind Executive Functioning skills and will introduce practical concepts and techniques to help your child or student to be successful across environments.
