Command Central for the Brain: The Importance of Teaching Executive Functioning Skills **

Presented by Phyl Macomber, M.S. ATP (3 Hours)

Executive functioning skills are the true command center for the brain. Year after year, teams wrestle with improving this critical skill set for struggling students. Accommodations, checklists and reference tools, however, are not the starting point for intervention. These solutions are ineffective if our students do not have basic foundational knowledge of the WHAT, WHY and HOW of executive functioning. Learn how to build a student’s fundamental understating of key executive functioning skills and walk away with simple “connect-the-dots” lessons so that your students can succeed, both in the classroom and the everyday world.
