Five Keys to Developing Executive Function Skills at School and at Home
March 29 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm MDTFREE
EXPERT: Julie Principe
This webinar is for parents and educators who are supporting children with ADHD in a culture designed for neurotypical people. Educator Julie Principe will share five keys to developing executive function skills that build on strengths and support growth in independence at school and at home: (1) know your strengths, (2) co-regulation, (3) emotional regulation, (4) environment, and (5) physical regulation. She will describe foundational supports that empower the child with ADHD, and explore what parents and educators can do to meet their needs across school and home settings.
At school, we will turn our attention to student regulation, schedule design, classroom structures, routines, transitions, and breaks. We will learn what co-regulation and emotional regulation might look like at home; what you are already doing and next steps. We will look at practical ways to set up your home environment, structures and routines while meeting the energy needs of a growing child.
In both settings we will look at the role of proactive strategies such as clear expectations and visual prompts. We will consider the challenge of staying on track (or getting back on track) when things don’t work out the way we planned. Lastly, we will look at communication and support between school and home. Compassion and understanding for teachers and parents works both ways.
