Belmont Special Education Advisory Council Presents:02/26/14 - Executive Function, Foundations for Learning

Executive function describes the complex brain processes that enable us to identify, pursue, and achieve goals. From making breakfast to managing a corporation, it is our executive function that regulates the attention, memory, emotion, and effort that we need to be successful. This workshop for parents shares key information about how executive function develops and relates to successful school performance, and what parents can do to enhance it.
