Does your child have difficulty getting organized? Is his approach to tasks haphazard? Does she forget to bring books home from school and forget to turn in homework? Does he have difficulty remembering important information? Do you worry about her struggle with self-regulation?

Problems with these “executive functions” can cause kids to fall short of expectations at home and at school.

What can you do to help?

This Ask the Expert will offer information about executive functioning in plain language and focus on guidelines for how to help youth move toward successful and independent executive functioning. The presentation will include examples of how to apply the principles, followed by a question and answer session.
