Executive Function Skills in Children and Adolescents

Teach children to manage their time, space and materials ….and keep their emotions in check!

This presentation sponsored by Newton SEPAC and Newton Public Schools, will cover powerful strategies to help your child develop independent executive function; teach students to internally sense the sweep of time, self-monitor in order to sustain concentration, manage pace, and complete tasks in allocated time frames; improve students’ motivation and task initiation, help them to plan homework and long-term projects/papers, and coach students to think in an organized way; and encourage self-initiative to manage homework and personal belongings.

The presenter is Ms. Kristen Jacobsen, MS CCC-SLP, a trained speech-language pathologist who is Co-Director at the Cognitive Connections Executive Function Practice.
