Summer Summit: The Home-School Connection: Essential for Learning Executive Function Strategies
August 3, 2021 @ 3:30 am – 5:30 pm
Presented by: Jane Gertler, Ph.D. and Mindy Scirri, Ph.D.
Whether you are a teacher or a parent, you understand that executive function is critically important for day to day living. Both at home and at school, students need executive function strategies to handle challenging tasks as they set goals, shift flexibly, organize materials and information, and self-monitor and check their behavior and their work. Teachers and parents do a lot to support the executive function needs of students; however, when EF expectations and supports are different at home and at school, EF difficulties may arise.
