Ever wonder why your child can spend hours playing video games, but has trouble doing homework or chores. Why do they lose their train of thought as well as their cell phone, shoes, and homework? Do they freeze up when you ask them to do something or have trouble remembering directions you’ve repeated several times?
Your child could have trouble with executive functioning skills. These are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully.
Sarah Groves from Akron Children's Hospital will help participants understand Executive Functioning skills, how they might present themselves at home this summer, and strategies for improving them.
