Does your son or daughter have trouble organizing work, completing tasks, managing materials, managing time, paying attention or have social difficulties? These are all cognitive skills that are referred to as Executive Functioning Skills. Executive Functioning Skills greatly impact children’s achievement and are often an associated feature of developmental or learning disabilities, or caused by a mismatch between a child’s neuro-developmental stage and the demands of their environment. This training will focus on ways in which parents and teachers can use appropriate strategies to support children’s developing executive skills, while helping improve academic performance.

Neurology 101: Why do I feel this way?
It is going to be interesting to see what kind of world we have when the current situation we are living is all over. For mental health, we need more real social interaction not less; unfortunately we have ended up with social distancing, which is exacerbating the anxiety that many kids already have. This presentation will cover a lot about the brain and how it works as best we know. It will encompass and explain how COVID 19 is impacting people. Join our guest speaker, author, and counselor, Jim Denning as he delivers information on this very important topic.
