The Child Beneath the Stress: Parenting Children with Executive Function Challenges
Lynn Meltzer, PhD
Executive Function is 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 two-hour evening program for parents, Dr. Meltzer will explore the role of Executive Function in all aspects of academic success.
Parents find it invaluable when they gain the ability to understand their child as a learner, advocate for their child when academic challenges arise, and work with the school to accomplish academic success for their child.
Springer's parent classes give parents insight, knowledge, and the language to use when working on behalf of their child. Our center staff is also available to help parents interpret educational testing results, consider next steps, and advocate for their child for optimal learning success in school.
- Teach parents ways to help their child at home and at school
- Provide interactions with other parents who share similar concerns
- Develop a better understanding of learning disabilities
