Are your students always...

Speaking out?

Have chaotic  projects?

Late to class?

Always unprepared?

Missing deadlines?

Late revision?

As education providers we can easily recognise those children who have weak executive functions; disorganised projects, incomplete homework, last-minute cramming for a big test and late for classes. But strategies for strengthening these vital skills are less obvious. Why? Because first, you must understand how ADHD and other neurodiverse conditions affect executive functions at school and at home.

The good news is that there is lots that you, as education specialists, can do. There are proven, research based executive function strategies which you can implement within the education setting to help sharpen executive functions.

In this Classroom Basics Masterclass, Victoria Bagnall, Co-Founder of Connections in Mind, will help you identify the steps you need to make to learn more about executive functions and how EF challenges affect neurodiverse children at school. You will learn to identify executive function strengths and weaknesses, implement strategies which address those weaknesses and set up EF-friendly classrooms.

Price: £20 + VAT

Monday 26th April 4- 5:30pm (BST)
