Executive functioning skills help the brain get things done in an organized and efficient way but what happens when a child or teen has difficulty in this area? Does your child often start an activity prior to hearing all the instructions? Have a hard time tolerating change? Have trouble knowing where to begin a big project? Or often underestimate time needed to complete a task? If so, strategies for improving executive functioning skills might be helpful. In this session you will learn how difficulties in executive functioning affect children and adolescents. You will also learn a number of strategies for helping your child or teen improve their skills.
