Understanding the Relationship Between Motivation, Learning, and Executive...
Tue, April 25, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
This presentation is designed to help middle and high school parents understand the cognitive processes behind Executive Functions (EF) and ways in which they impact a child’s effort, goal-setting, organization, study skills, and motivation. Executive Functioning (EF) means being goal-driven, self-motivated, self-sufficient, introspective, and engaged in learning. The developing brain needs guidance and support to promote mastery of Executive Functioning ability. Sucheta Kamath will discuss ways parents can direct their children to navigate the maze of becoming highly effective and independent learners. Kamath will share tips to promote the development of good habits, right mindset, and problem-solving skills.
Presenter: Sucheta Kamath, MA (SLP), MA (Linguistics), BC-NCD is passionate about educating all kinds of learners. She believes in Mindful Learning and the need for teaching our learners methods and processes related to self-devised strategic thinking. She strongly advocates for curriculum that accelerates metacognitive development and executive functions. These approaches and techniques are useful and essential for all students and not just those who have been diagnosed with a learning issue. Sucheta serves on the Board of Directors for the International Dyslexia Association - Georgia Branch. For more information about Sucheta Kamath and EF, visit www.cerebralmatters.com.
