At home are you having trouble starting homework? Maybe the homework is done but doesn't get to the classroom? Are you struggling with establishing a routine and keeping it going? Please join us for a workshop on how to support and bolster our young children's developing executive functioning skills and to explore how we can lend our frontal lobes and executive strategies to our children while their own skills are developing. We will explore and discuss practical strategies for supporting study skills, keeping backpacks organized, managing time and space, and helping establish and stay consistent with routines. If you have specific areas that you would like to address please include it on the RSVP form.
