Executive Function 101

What a treat to welcome Anita Watson LMHCP, MSCP last night for a parent/guardian education event, sponsored by our counselors and learning resources team. Watson, who also met with our faculty and staff before school started this year, is a dynamic, entertaining and down-to-earth presenter, and she offers everyday examples that are easy to relate to as the parent/guardian of a child. From regulating emotional response when someone else gets a turn first, to planning how to tackle a major project, right on up to negotiating the complex demands of adolescent life and beyond, executive function skills play a key role.
