“Building Better Brains: How improving executive functioning skills fosters academic and social success”
In this dynamic and interactive workshop designed for teachers, administrators and school counselors of students, participants will learn concrete strategies to meet learners where they are and help them strengthen essential executive functioning skills.
With current research on the developing brain and real-life case examples, Dr. Saline shows you how and why executive functioning skills are critical to cognition, social-emotional learning and the management of anxiety and depression. Innovative tools to improve focus, organization, planning and motivation will also be covered.
