Executive function skills develop gradually and at different rates for different people. Most children struggle at one time or another with planning, organization and follow through. Children with learning and attention issues nearly always have difficulty with one or more executive skills, which can lead to obstacles in learning and behavior. Academic success in our schools is linked with children’s mastery of a wide range of skills that rely on their use of executive function strategies. The crucial role of executive function processes begins in the preschool years and increases as children progress through middle and high school when they are expected to master complex skills that involve summarizing, note taking and writing. We will explore each of the five areas of executive function in more detail during this fun and exciting summer class. This executive functioning skills class will help your child understand how they think and learn and to teach them to use strategies in the five major executive function areas: Organizing, Prioritizing, Shifting/Thinking Flexibly, Accessing Working Memory, and Self-Monitoring/Self-Checking. | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
