Back by popular demand, Dr. Buzz will be providing a dynamic, hands-on workshop focused on Executive Skill Functioning for students with social, emotional, learning and behavioral disabilities. This engaging three-hour presentation will deliver meaningful "take away" strategies that address:

  • Function of the Prefrontal Cortex
  • Reasons for Executive Skill Dysfunction
  • Difference between the Cortical and Subcortical regions of the brain
  • Developmental Milestones for Executive Skill Functioning
  • Process and Development of Neuroplasticity
  • Cognition and Sequencing
  • Self-Regulation and Behavioral Management
  • Social Skills Development
  • Schoolwide Interventions

We will cover definitions and examples and will provide a toolkit of actionable steps for educators, all rooted in SPECT brain-based science. The content will be delivered via a power point presentation, printed handouts, additional materials, hands-on activities, and with the encouragement of lots of questions and answers.
