Does your child struggle to stay organized, complete homework, and prepare for tests and quizzes? The child who performs below expectations may be experiencing challenges with Executive Function, the set of mental processes that help us to connect past experiences with present action to perform activities such as planning, organizing and managing time.

In this presentation for parents, Dr. Lynn Meltzer will explore the role of Executive Function in all aspects of academic success and draw on real-world experiences from classroom teachers and students who have overcome learning challenges. This
presentation is specially designed for parents who wish to gain greater understanding of the role Executive Function plays in helping students to cope with the stress and anxiety associated with school performance.
