Workshop/Learning Opportunities

Using Executive Functioning Skills to Close the Homework Circle – Implementation Support for Parents.

Oakland Schools is sponsoring a parent webinar on Executive Functioning presented by Sarah Ward, CCC-SLP on February 9, 2017 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM.  There is no cost.  Parents just need an internet connection. For many students, including students with weak executive function skills, homework is a challenge.  Parents and students alike can get frustrated while trying to complete homework.  In this webinar, parents will review simple techniques to help students organize and process information for assignments.  This webinar will focus on the Get-Do-Done strategy and have opportunities to submit questions. This session is designed for parents of students in 3rd through 8th grades. For more detailed information: https://www.smore.com/51k8n .
