Wednesday Web Talks – Register Here

Metacognition, or thinking about your own thinking, is the foundation that allows for the development of executive functioning abilities. Strong executive functioning skills are at the intersection of self-¬regulation and strategic thinking. Deficits in either area can impact a child’s ability to be successful, both academically and socially. This presentation will provide a foundation for understanding metacognition and executive functioning as they relate to learning and interacting. Participants will learn strategies and tools to support executive functioning and metacognitive skills in the areas of impulse inhibition and strategic thinking. Read more and register here.
