Many adopted and foster children struggle with executive function challenges, meaning that their brains can have difficulty with complex thinking, regulating feelings and impulses, and coordinating thoughts and feelings. These issues can affect every aspect of a child’s life, including success in academics and peer relationships. This workshop for parents and professionals is timed to coincide with the return to school. It will focus exclusively on interventions, which are paradoxically simple and complex, general and specific. This workshop is the second in a series on executive function provided by C.A.S.E. Attendees do not need to have viewed the previous workshop.
