Feedback form is now closed.
An increasing number of students come to the classroom with very obvious characteristics of deficits in attention and executive functions.  In this interactive workshop we will explore the brain research, identify hidden characteristics and implications of these deficits for learners, and determine how this information can be integrated into any classroom.  Teachers will learn strategies that can transform lesson planning and student focus, memory, and production.  Students can learn techniques to be more attentive, organized and intentional as they complete assignments.  We will also highlight the importance of metacognition and how it helps students take control of their learning.  Teachers will be provided ideas for teaching metacognition and age-appropriate metacognitive tools to your students.  Multiple tools, strategies, and resources will be shared.
