Ed Fest 2017 – 23rd June
June 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Connections in Mind have been invited to speak at Ed Fest 2017
Dr Peg Dawson is flying over to the UK to talk at this prestigious event.
Executive Functions (organisational skills, delayed gratification, working memory, task initiation and sustained attention ) are required to be a successful learner, they can be developed but are not widely fostered in school environments. Peg Dawson, author of Smart But Scattered Kids/Teens, and the Connections in Mind team will talk us through what Executive Functions are, why they are important for learning, and how we can improve Executive Skills in our students.
