With current research on the developing brain and real-life case examples, Dr. Sharon Saline shows you how and why executive functioning skills are critical to the learning process for all students, especially for kids with learning disabilities, ADHD, 2E and level one autism.
Innovative tools to improve focus, organization, planning and motivation will also be covered. Exercises designed to improve participants’ understanding of living with learning differences, teaching students with these challenges and brainstorming about specific classroom challenges are threaded throughout the workshop.
