Executive Functioning (EF) means being goal driven, self-motivated, self-sufficient, introspective, and engaged in learning. During this presentation, Sucheta Kamath will help parents and teachers understand further the cognitive processes behind Executive Functions (EF) and ways in which they impact a child's effort, goal-setting, organization, study skills, and motivation. Sucheta will share tips and ideas for ways to help children become effective and independent learners. There will be opportunity for parents and teachers to ask questions.
This event is a joint venture of Dyslexia Forsyth, DDGA, and the Georgia Branch of the International Dyslexia Association.
