Please join us on Tuesday January 30th at 6pm for our next presentation in our Parent Support Series: Terra Lynch presents Executive Function
Inability to find shoes, forgetting important dates, difficulty starting on a project, problems completing a multi-step process. When children struggle with Executive Function – the thought processes that help us plan, organize, and complete tasks – it makes a big impact on life at school and at home. Please join BHE parent Terra Lynch in this interactive exploration of why Executive Function is important, and what strategies parents can use to strengthen these skills.
