Late, Lost, & Lagging Behind: Demystifying Executive Functions
Executive functioning skills are essential to how we learn and act. They’re the brain’s ability to self-regulate, complete tasks, be time-aware, and remember information.
In essence, they control EVERYTHING we do.
In this workshop, award-winning, ADHD Student & Parenting coach, Leslie Josel, will describe the six pillars of executive functions, including time management, working memory, focus, and effort. She’ll highlight the importance of understanding Executive Age, and provide insight into how we can help our children strengthen their EF muscle. Leslie will also bring her signature “Triple T’s” to the table, offering REAL practical tips and tools from her time in the trenches to help you help your child conquer time management, focusing, and organization challenges. She’ll share some of her tried and true coaching techniques such as harnessing the "Power of Done," "Seeing Time to Manage Time,” and “Harnessing Self-Leadership.”
