Dr. Kay Otten session addresses Executive Functioning
Executive functioning issues are difficulties with a set of mental skills that are key to learning. Kids who have trouble with executive function often struggle with working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. Deficits in executive-functioning skills have been associated with several behavioral challenges, such as shifting attention, inhibiting impulses, initiating activity, organizing actions and materials, time management, working memory and emotional control.
Prairie Lakes will host a workshop designed to offer ALL educators a proactive approach for targeting these skill deficits through various instructional strategies. It will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 17 at the PLAEA office in Pocahontas. Lunch will be on your own.
