Executive Function Expert Sarah Ward
Does your child complete his/her homework and forget to turn it in?
Do you find yourself driving back to school to pick up a book or work your child forgot to bring home?
Do you find yourself saying, “If my child could be more organized, life would be so much easier for him/her?”
Then come join an encore presentation of
Practical Executive Function Strategies for Home and School
Learn strategies to teach your child to efficiently manage his/her own tasks, time, space and materials (while keeping emotions in check!)
This presentation was attended by over 200 people last May and received high reviews. This not to be missed workshop remains free to all parents thanks to the generosity of the Lynnfield and Reading Special Education Departments.
