Event Description

We’ll review various aspects of executive functioning, including how it develops over a child’s lifespan and its impact on their learning. We’ll also discuss what parents can do to bolster these skills at home and in school. Additionally, parents will take away which programs have the strongest evidence-base to best support their child’s executive functioning development.

Light refreshments, including wine and cheese, will be provided. For questions about the workshop, please email
