Being well organized can help our children to succeed at home, school, and eventually in the workplace.  It can help to offset the increased risk for academic struggle that may be related to early problems with speech and language skills. These skills can be taught from a young age continuing to be useful into adulthood.  Does your preschooler have age-appropriate problem-solving skills?  Does your elementary student or teen lose track of assignments, have trouble starting or finishing school work, or lose it before it gets to the teacher? Do they lose track of time or misjudge how much time a project will take to complete?  In this session, learn about executive function skills and how you can help your child learn to be better at planning, initiating, and finishing tasks.  At the end of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify what executive function skills are and how they relate to self-regulation.
  • List organizational strategies that contribute to success in school and at work.
  • Describe how organizational skills can be taught.
