Norwalk SPED Partners & SPED*NET Wilton present:

Executive Function skills are responsible for goal-directed, problem-solving behavior and are essential to academic success. Students with Executive Functioning deficits have difficulties such as: making mature judgments about right & wrong and cause & effect, managing time constructively, setting goals appropriately, controlling emotional and behavioral impulses, prioritizing, sustaining attention, planning and organizing, starting tasks and following through, and self-regulating. This presentation will provide parents and teachers with suggestions for educational and home strategies to support children with executive function deficits.

David Andersen, Ph.D., is a certified school psychologist for Norwalk Public Schools, a member of the American Psychological Association, and a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice in Stamford, CT. A graduate of Harvard University (Ed.M.) and the Derner Institute at Adelphi University (Ph.D.), Dr. Andersen has taught undergraduate and graduate level courses in psychology as an adjunct professor at Sacred Heart University, Iona College, and Norwalk Community College.

Teachers will earn 0.2 CEUs.
