Summer Teacher Training Workshops: Understanding Executive Function: A two part workshop series.
LDAYR and Evoke Present
Executive Functions are the brain processes that enable us to regulate the world around us, utilizing organizational and higher-order learning skills.
Research demonstrates that Executive Function is a better predictor of school performance than a student’s IQ. Development of these skills are essential for success in school and later in life.
These workshops are designed for classroom and subject-area teachers of grade levels 1–12, special education teachers, EA’s, social workers, school principals, and other interested administrators.
