Homework, Projects & Test Prep: Executive Functions Make the Grade

What sets the stage for overcoming executive function difficulties? How do we foster growth and change? This presentation will address both the mindset and the specific tools that lead to progress in students with executive function challenges. The goal of this presentation is to help parents become more effective at helping their children develop autonomy and ownership of their academic performance. Our presenter will be Jackie Stachel, who is both the Director of Media and Outreach and a Senior Coach and Supervisor at Thinking Outside The Classroom.
