Sleep loss, executive functioning and decision-making

Wednesday 27th January 2021, 8pm (GMT)

About this webinar: Decision-making is an essential skill for academic and social growth at school, for professional growth at work and for general wellbeing. It is also necessary for achieving goals, task planning, initiation and completion.

Did know that 30% of the general population and 75% of adults and children with ADHD have problems with sleep?
