Location: Online via Zoom

Workshop Description:

With the continued climb in anxiety in children (over 30% of students), teachers and students need to be aware of the relationship between anxiety and executive function. In moments of high stress, executive function can be hijacked, causing students to forget directions or have trouble getting started or sticking with a task when it gets challenging. In this interactive workshop, you’ll be empowered with:

  • an understanding of anxiety and executive function
  • practical language to talk about anxiety and executive function
  • productive responses to decrease anxiety and build executive function, particularly how to improve organization, transitions, routines, self-monitoring, self-regulating and mental flexibility—all without sacrificing too much instructional time.

Learn how to help your students, particularly those with anxiety, ADHD or learning challenges, become less stressed and more efficient, autonomous and productive.

Certification of Completion:

Please note that participants will not receive academic credit nor a transcript documenting their participation in this workshop series. However, all participants will receive a certificate of completion.
