*Are Your Students Lazy, Distracted or Impulsive?
Date: April 3, 2017 Time: 9am - 3pm
Location: FEA Conference Center
Presenter: Sharon McCarthy
Fee: $149.00

Far too often, students with Executive Functioning weaknesses get stuck with these labels. These ubiquitous markers prevent us, as educators, from intervening where it is needed most--targeted development of self-control. All research points to the fact that self-control is a strong indicator of future success, regardless of intelligence or social status. As teachers, you cannot control your students' SES or IQ but you DO have the ability to affect their self-control. Join us to learn how to consciously foster your students' "grit". In this session, participants will learn:
-Five concrete, reproducible interventions for increasing neural activity and connections in the pre-frontal cortex (where executive function lives);
-Protocols for successful and productive group and center work.

Start Date: Monday, April 3, 2017
