    Executive Functioning (EF) has become a popular term mentioned among educators. EF refers to the process in which we initiate a task, organize and plan how to accomplish the task, and lastly persevere and stay focused despite distractions until we complete the task. Although we typically think of executive functioning skills for middle and high school students, research shows the importance of explicitly teaching executive functioning skills to early childhood-aged children to foster independence, responsibility, and self-regulation. This webinar will give parents tools and strategies to help their early learners practice executive functioning skills, giving them a strong foundation to succeed! This webinar is for parents with early learners that have an IFSP, IEP, or 504 plan. This is a free event, but RSVP is required. Please go here to register. This is an external partner event. Please contact the organization directly with any questions or concerns: ttjeanbaptiste@cps.edu.
