Leslie Josel | Late, Lost & Lagging Behind: Demystifying Executive Functions

January 27th, ONLINE

Executive function skills are essential to how we learn and act. They're the brain's ability to self-regulate, complete tasks, be time-aware, and remember information. In essence, they control EVERYTHING we do. Renowned expert, Leslie Josel, will describe the six pillars of executive functions, including time management, working memory, effort, and mood regulation. She'll highlight the importance of understanding Executive Age, and provide insight into how we can help our students strengthen their EF muscle. Leslie will also bring her signature “Triple T’s” to the table, offering REAL practical tips and tools from her time in the trenches to help conquer organization, time management, and focusing challenges.

SNAP is sponsoring a book study in advance of Leslie Josel's session. Her book, How To Do It Now...Because It’s Not Going Away: An Expert Guide To Getting Stuff Done is a "straight-talking guide filled with real-life solutions to help students get done what they need to get done NOW.

This title is readily available for under $15 from Amazon and similar booksellers.

There will be an online discussion of Leslie's book on Thursday, February 24th, from 4 pm until 5:30 pm with staff. Interested parents are welcome to attend the discussion.  https://us04web.zoom.us/j/75242214910?pwd=3VESL5kMTM506Tb7uCYm_mGsIr5tng.1
