Everything Parents Need to Know about Executive Functioning
This workshop with Matthew Pagirsky, PsyD, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Child Mind Institute, is designed to help parents better understand their child's executive functioning.
We will review various aspects of executive functioning, including how it develops over a child's lifespan and its impact on their learning. We will also discuss what parents can do to bolster these skills at home and in school. Additionally, parents will take away which programs have the strongest evidence-base to best support their child's executive functioning development.
