Executive Function Workshops

Executive functions are a set of cognitive and behavior skills, located in the prefrontal cortex of our brains, which include planning, working memory, and inhibitory control. In short, content area is the “what” of learning and executive function is the “how” of learning; it’s how we get things done.

Our Executive Function Bootcamp focuses on making students aware of their brain development, their executive function strengths and challenges, and introducing tools and strategies to build executive skills.

What is executive function? You may have heard of it. You may even have Googled 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?

Parents/guardians attend with their student(s) for a shared experience and shared language; learn all about executive function and how it impacts student learning; leave with tools and strategies to implement at home.

This workshop is taught by our CM Directors: Lisa + Tatiana!
