LDAYR Summer Workshop Series for Parents

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 parents, guardians and caregivers of children and young adults who struggle with Executive Function Disorder.
