Putting the "Function" Back into Executive Functioning: Organizing and Time Management Strategies for Student Success!
Presentation by Leslie Josel
In this workshop, Leslie will dive deep into why students are disorganized and time challenged. She will demystify Executive Functions; explain what they are, how they affect our students and provide practical strategies and solutions. Leslie will also open the door to the world of time management, what it really means, why it’s important and why your teen probably doesn’t get it. Using examples from real case histories, she will share innovative and out of the box tips, tools and techniques to provide guidance for parents looking to help their teen understand, develop and implement these essential life skills.
