Learn it on Saturday...Implement it Monday Morning!
This is a Practical Strategies Seminar!
In this hands on workshop with your registration fee you will receive all the materials needed to have a fresh organized start to the academic year and to support a student in reaching independent executive function skills.
Parents, teachers and professionals will gain a solid understanding of what the executive function skills are and how they impact a student’s academic and personal performance. Learn many practical strategies to improve motivation and task initiation; increase awareness of and ability to set reasonable goals; teach time management skills for prioritizing, organizing and completing homework, long term projects and personal tasks. Coach students to think in an organized way and encourage self-initiative to manage homework and personal belongings.
Developing a "Memory for the Future" is important for goal setting! Students need to know the goal and then use self initiated organizational strategies to achieve their goals. Improve a student's awareness skills so they can "read a room"; and use their reasoning skills to "stop, think and create" an appropriate action plan with anticipated possible outcomes.
To See and Sense the Passage of Time is a fundamental skill that students who tend to procrastinate need to develop! Learn how to help them accurately and effortlessly estimate how long tasks will take, change or maintain their pace, and carry out routines and tasks within allotted time frames. Help students adopt a mindful approach to homework and to develop personalized study habits.
Managing the Multiples is a reality our kids face everyday! Learn how to help students manage homework, projects, extracurricular and after school activities....and still find some down time! Support students through the process of recording, bringing home, completing and returning assignments with simple routines that can lead to independence.
Organize their Homework Space and Personal Belongings: Learn how to create a positive and productive environment for homework with fundamental rules that can get and keep students organized beyond the first week of September. Help students to create and own strategies to track and organize their materials.
