Teachers often overlook executive function as a root cause of some of the most mystifying academic or behavioral issues. Students labeled as lazy, unmotivated or disruptive may simply need interventions that specifically target deficits in executive function skills.
Join Margaret Searle for a 2-hour webinar that will give you lots of insights and strategies for helping students who struggle with reading and writing because of poor motivation, weak organization skills, memory problems and impulsive behaviors. Learn how to identify and address these deficits early, before frustration and discouragement escalate into behavior problems.
Through practice cases, Margaret will show you how to diagnose root causes, develop specific interventions and practical 3-step action plans. This problem-solving protocol has helped hundreds of schools transform their intervention team meetings into productive sessions that involve families in a positive way. You will be stunned by the results of these interventions with students experiencing executive function deficits!
