Build the Cognitive Skills Your Child Needs to Succeed in School and Life” 
Thursday, February 17, 2022: “Build the Cognitive Skills Your Child Needs to Succeed in School and Life”

According to over 40 years of neuroscience research, all challenging behavior can be linked to one or more cognitive skills that are lagging. The five cognitive skills that play a crucial role in behavior are: (1) emotion regulation, (2) executive function, (3) cognitive flexibility, (4) language processing and (5) social skills. During this webinar, you will learn about each of these skills, how they contribute to challenging behavior, and what you can do to build these skills.
