Building Better Brains: Empowering your teen for success in school and life with less conflict and more cooperation

Free Killingly High School Workshop with Dr. Sharon Saline

For Parents and Guardians of KHS Students

Are you tired of struggling with your teen over school, homework, or chores? In this dynamic and interactive presentation based on current research about the teen brain, neurodiversity and mood issues, Dr. Saline will show you how and why executive functioning skills are critical to adolescent development.

With this deeper understanding of executive functioning skills, you’ll be able to create more effective strategies to nurture cognitive strengths, improve social-emotional learning and overcome daily challenges. She will also address the ways that stress and anxiety affect students, their academic performance and peer relationships and how they contribute to lying and pushback behaviors. You will walk away with practical techniques for reducing conflict at home and improve cooperation and positive connections with your teen!
