'Executive Functioning Skills Training in Brookline Public Schools' Parent Info Event

Everyone is welcome to hear more about how Brookline Public Schools are starting to implement skills training in executive functioning for our students. Heath School is currently rolling out training, thanks to a grant from the Heath PTO, and other schools are considering similar programs. This info-packed two hour session will be led by Kristen Jacobsen, MS CCC-SLP, a trained speech-language pathologist who is Co-Director at the Cognitive Connections Executive Function Practice. Executive function skills is a term used to describe difficulties associated with goal setting, carrying out organized steps and modifying a plan to complete a task successfully. These skills are built on the ability to learn from past experiences and apply that knowledge in new experiences.  Attention, memory, impulse control, organization, planning, and hierarchical thinking problems often described by parents and teachers are the executive function difficulties that can interfere with an individual’s ability to succeed at school. NOTE: Based on interest in past events, this event may be standing-room only, so we recommend arriving early to grab a seat!
