EF Bootcamp for Parents

  • Classroom Matters 2436 Sacramento Street Berkeley, CA 94702 (map)

What is executive function? You may have heard of it. You may even have Googled it. You know your children struggle with it.

The term "executive function" has been a mainstay of the special education lexicon for decades. However, neurotypical students have executive function deficits as well. Your children may struggle with focus, retention, and impulse control. How does executive function impact learning? How does it impact your home life and your relationship with your kids?

Join us for an interactive workshop that explores the full range of executive function. Build awareness of, and empathy for, EF challenges, and learn tools and strategies to foster EF skills at home. 

We will address the following executive skills: time management, planning and prioritizing, organization, working memory, task initiation, sustained attention, flexibility and problem solving, persistence and grit, emotional regulation, and metacognition.

This 90-minute workshop includes an interactive slide presentation, experiential activities, short videos, and partner and small-group sharing. All workshop materials provided.
