Presented by Sarah Ward M.S., CCC-SLP
Join Sarah Ward M.S., CCC-SLP for a two-day workshop exploring strategies to develop independent executive function skills across the lifespan. You, your students, children, youth and clients can make significant improvements in organization, planning, and time management skills for example–and be more successful, efficient, and accomplished at school, work, or home.
ACT is committed to ensuring equitable access for all events, providing CART captioning as well as ASL interpretation whenever possible.

Executive function skills enable us all to follow directions, organize tasks, and attend to and manage time. For children and youth, this helps them complete homework, follow routines at home and school, and organize school and personal materials.
As important as these skills are for children and youth, executive function skills continue to develop well into the adult years. In fact, the area of the brain responsible for executive function skills is the last part of the brain to mature and so executive function skills typically are not fully developed until the mid 20s!
Get ready to supercharge your skills and see your students, children/youth, and or clients–and even yourselves, achieve goals like never before. You’ll walk away with dozens of practical and effective approaches to develop executive function skills across the lifespan. Don’t miss this opportunity to take your teaching and learning to the next level and walk away with an unbeatable toolbox of strategies and resources!
