Supporting Teens with Executive Functioning Challenges

Presented by:

Raloon Bialek, ARHS Special Education Teacher and Denise Green, ARHS School Psychologist

Does your child struggle to keep track of and complete assignments?  Are needed materials often lost or left at school?  Is homework completed, only to be lost before your child can turn it in?  These are all challenges associated with executive functioning challenges.  Come learn about the brain-based source of these challenges, as well as interventions and strategies that can help students plan and organize their academic work. There will be a presentation along with an opportunity to ask questions!
