Does your child struggle with pacing, become easily distracted, forget to write down assignments, have difficulty getting started on tasks, or performs inconsistently? Does he seem to ‘know’ a skill, but cannot ‘apply’ the skill? If so, your child may have deficits in Executive Functioning. Executive Functioning deficits are often intertwined with a wide range of disabilities, and can have an adverse impact on a child’s ability to be successful at school. Most importantly, research shows that Executive Functions must be trained, in order for an Executive Functioning deficit to be remediated. Education Advocates Laurie Markus and Ann McCarthy will provide parents with a basic understanding of Executive Functions and their role in educational success, how Executive Functions can be evaluated, and how to convert those evaluation results into a school-based intervention plan.
