Executive Function Series
Executive function involves our ability to plan, focus attention, remember directions/instructions and manage multiple tasks. No one is born with these skills. We all need ongoing practice to master these skills. Some kids have the natural ability to develop these skills but most need to practice and learn. The ability and maturity needed to learn these skills change with age. Developing executive function and self regulation skills are important developmental tasks especially in this digital age. Learning these skills will give the children the opportunity to grow into successful, empathetic and self-sufficient adults.
We are proud to partner with Tutoring Club of Jacksonville to bring the following classes.
Watch here and on our Facebook page for announcements for new classes and offerings as well as sign ups.
The classes will be taught by Michele Tanner. Michele is the owner and director of the Tutoring Club of Jacksonville.
