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. This event is sponsored by Pullman & Comley, LLC and Jostens Renaissance Education.
