December SEPAC Meeting

Elise Wulff from MGH Aspire will be joining us on December 10th, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. to discuss practical strategies to support Executive Functioning in remote and hybrid learning, both household and individual, to help make the best of a challenging situation. 

The transition to remote learning gave many parents and caregivers a new data set on their child’s learning and educational skill set. Executive Functioning (EF) plays a huge role in a student’s ability and success accessing curriculum, whether in the classroom or from home. And, the challenges and complexities of learning in the COVID pandemic require a greater emphasis on supporting organization, initiation and follow-through, self-regulation, and flexibility- all core EF skills. This workshop will give an overview of the core EF concepts, and how to spot them in your child/student(s) specifically during this period of pandemic learning. We will discuss the importance of identifying your child’s EF profile to best match the specific and appropriate strategy to the source of the challenge.
