Event description

Description

We are never more aware of challenges with Executive Function then when it is homework time.
We often wonder if there is "a better way" to get our kids to:

  • start their work,
  • finish their work,
  • manage their work over time (instead of the last minute) and/or
  • show they care as much about their success as we do!

In our October Lunch and Learn, Lindsey Thoms, Sr. Director of Development and Operations, The StudyPro and Assistive Technology Resource Teacher at FCPS, will help parents understand how we can bolster Executive Function challenges with proven and straightforward techniques.
She will review:

  • How parents can recognize EF challenges and
    distinguish them from behavioral challenges,
  • Specific strategies parents can use to bolster EF skills
    and support a student's move to independence,
  • Tools the EF coaches use to improve studying techniques and homework habits

Lindsey will share simple strategies that busy parents can successfully employ to improve the relationship we have with our children at homework-time and provide approaches to support their students if their EF skills aren't quite there "yet"!
