How to Help Students With Their Executive Functioning at Home
Join Craig Selinger and Sharif Williams on Monday, November 7, 6 pm (virtual) for an open discussion where parents are encouraged to ask questions and to learn how to help students with their executive functioning at home. Executive skills are tools for success in every area of our lives. We welcome you to be part of this conversation.
Strong executive functioning skills can help you achieve your goals at home, in the classroom, or in a work environment. By breaking a big task into smaller tasks, allocating resources, and keeping track of materials and physical space, you can help yourself be more productive and efficient. It is also necessary in organizing a sequence of actions taken in order to reach an objective, set certain times in which tasks should be executed, delegate, meet deadlines, and assess one’s own work or performance.
An individual’s executive functioning skills go beyond just maintaining a neat office or keeping a clean closet. They include knowing how to manage time productively, multitasking, determining what tasks have to be done at a given time, and much more. It also refers to one’s ability to remain composed, maintain focus, stay levelheaded in challenging times, and the like.
Executive functioning coaching/tutoring helps individuals minimize or eliminate any factors that prevent them from becoming successful and efficient at home, school, and work, such as procrastination, poor communication, and clutter.
