Executive Functioning Expertise

November 5,  7-8:30PM
Paul Pratt Library, Cohasset

Thinking Outside the Classroom with Jackie Stachel
Executive Function: What is it? How does it affect school and daily living? How can we help our children?

This Executive function training for families and educators,

piggy-backs the professional development all Cohasset staff received October 11.

Come learn more about what your children’s teachers are learning.

(1 1/2 hours learning credits will be given to nursery school teachers.)

What sets the stage for overcoming executive function difficulties? How do we foster growth and change? This presentation will address both the mindset and the specific tools that lead to progress in students with executive function challenges. The goal of this presentation is to help parents become more effective at helping their children develop autonomy and ownership of their academic performance.
FREE workshop- Students, parents, grandparents, teachers welcome from all communities.
