Building Executive Functioning Through Purposeful Play
Executive functioning are the specialized cognitive skills, primarily in the frontal lobe of the brain, which work together to regulate, recall, and plan a person's actions. These skills help a child remember and follow multiple-step instructions; avoid distractions and impulsive responses; adjust when rules or instructions change; keep trying after an initial failure; and organize and manage projects and long term-assignments. Executive functioning skills are vital to each student's success in school and life. This program will be presented by Elizabeth Aschenbrenner, Director of Early Childhood Initiatives at EASTCONN.
