Coaching Neurodiverse Learners on Executive Functioning Skills

iep-504-101

We are pleased to welcome Erin Bosack Garcia, program manager for Educational Endeavors, to speak to the Skinner North community about executive functioning skills for diverse learners. The seminar, Coaching Neurodiverse Learners on Executive Functioning Skills, will address the areas of:

  • organization
  • time management
  • goal setting
  • focus

For each topic, we will discuss common challenges for neurodiverse students, explore activities aimed at developing student self-awareness, practice strategies for improved performance, and set potential goals for students. Participants will be invited to reflect on their experiences and will walk away with concrete tools they can use for working with their students.

This is an in-person event with no virtual component.

This seminar is intended for caregivers of diverse learners, but is open to the entire Skinner North community. Upper grade students are welcome to attend under caregiver supervision.
