Building better brains: How improving executive
functioning skills fosters social, emotional and academic success
Zoom Presentation with the Bridge Training Institute
Would you like practical tools to help kids harness their natural potential, reduce stress and get things done with less arguing and more cooperation? Whether it’s academics, social challenges, mental health issues or technology, many children and teens struggle with feeling overwhelmed and can’t seem to keep up, especially those young people with ADHD, high-functioning ASD or learning disabilities. In this dynamic and interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to navigate their complex mix of biology, behavior and emotion and strengthen essential executive functioning skills to improve both home and school experiences.
With current research on the developing brain and real-life case examples, Dr.
Saline shows you why executive functioning skills are critical to learning and
development and how stress and anxiety negatively impact them. Innovative tools to improve focus, organization, planning and motivation will also be covered. Throughout the workshop, exercises are designed to improve participants’ understanding of living with learning differences, how to assist kids and their families with these challenges and opportunities to brainstorm about your specific clinical and/or classroom issues.
By focusing on a strength-based, positive psychology approach and including
kids’ voices in problem-solving, participants will learn how to create effective
interventions that go beyond medication and crisis management. You will leave this workshop with tangible strategies for identifying and nurturing cognitive strengths in young people to help them overcome daily challenges and improve their home and school experiences.
