Parent Workshop: Executive Function Through a Family Lens
Executive Function and self-regulation are important skills for success in school and in life. Participants in this workshop will examine child and parent executive function strengths and weaknesses and how they impact parenting practices, child development and family life. In this two-session workshop, we will share strategies to develop working memory, goal setting, stress tolerance, organization/ planning skills and self-control.
Presented by Ackerman’s Special Needs Project, this workshop aims to promote family resilience as parents deal with the challenges they encounter while raising a child with special needs.
