Understanding Executive Functioning and its Impact at Home and in School

  • Westwood High School (Professional Development Room, District Administration) 200 Nahatan Street Westwood, MA, 02090 United States (map)

Speaker: Donna Kincaid M. Ed.

Asst. Director of The Institute for Learning and Development 

This presentation will provide parents with a clear understanding of the term “executive function” and how executive function weaknesses affect children in school and at home. Parents will also learn how anxiety can affect one’s ability to plan, organize and complete tasks (e.g. homework and chores) and typical behaviors that often result. Parents will leave with specific strategies to help their children (and themselves) to decrease anxiety and increase productivity.

Location: Westwood High School, 220 Nahatan Street
Park in the front horseshoe parking lot off Nahatan Street. Go through the doors marked “District Administration”. Once inside follow signage to Professional Development Room.
