Taught by Peg Oliveira, Ph.D. – Executive Director
Throughout the day we ask children to do two basic, but not so simple things. We ask them to STOP and we ask them to GO. And for some young children, stopping from a go, and going from a stop, or executive function skills, can be a fundamental challenge. Research tells us that certain areas of the brain are responsible for these complex skills that we now know best predict academic and lifelong success.
This webinar training will investigate: (1) How executive function skills impact learning; (2) Brain growth as related to executive function; and (3) The positive and negative impacts of experiences and relationships on self-regulation.
