They often forget and lose things. 
Their assignment notebooks may be empty or incomplete.
They seem disorganized.
They may appear disengaged or lazy.

Sally Grimes will provide the "nuts and bolts" of recognizing and assisting EF issues such as planning, organizing, prioritizing, attention and cognitive functions. The presenter's decades of experience in the fields of Learning Disabilities, Literacy and Language, and Social-Emotional Development provide the backdrop to this workshop. 

Practical strategies and current issues will be addressed, resources will be provided, and several short videos will be used to clarify this area of intervention. Resources will be provided as well as exposure to currently available curriculum ideas. This workshop will focus on Pre K-Grade 5, but the concepts, resources and methodologies can be easily applied to students through Grade 12.
