Executive Functioning and Struggling Learners

Election Day PD circle red, white, blue graphic


Executive Functioning impacts all aspects of our life, especially academic and social learning. It affects one's ability to attend, manage time, shift attention, have flexible thinking, remember details, organize, initiate tasks, plan and prioritize. Together, we will explore exactly what Executive Functioning is and how it impacts learning and social development. Throughout the day, we will gain strategies that can be implemented to support learning and overall success for struggling students.
