St. Mary’s County, The New IQ: Understanding and Teaching Executive Function Skills in and Out of the Classroom

November 2, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Teaching children to think clearly and efficiently is a universal goal of parents and teachers alike.  Thinking skills such as planning, goal setting, organizing, prioritizing, self- monitoring, accessing working memory, impulse control and sustaining focused attention are critical to academic success at every age.  Most important, the development of these skills allows children to mature into independent, healthy and functional adults.  Executive function skills are the HOW of learning. Join us to learn some strategies to teach executive functioning skills!

Shauna King, a certified Upside Down Organization presenter, is currently a graduate course instructor with The Regional Training Center. She has worked in various roles in public and non-public school settings, including principal, program and intervention specialist, peer mediation teacher and classroom teacher. Shauna worked as the PBIS coordinator in one of the largest school districts in the state of Maryland. Because of her commitment to this initiative, she was invited to join the Maryland PBIS State Leadership Team where she served as a state level trainer.

This workshop is free to parents and teachers, however, registration is required.

The deadline to register is Friday, October 27, 2017.
