Presented by: Laura Anthony, PhD

Many of our kids struggle with executive functioning while receiving all of the structure and supports of school. What happens to kids when those structures and supports are no longer available in online learning? How can we help our students who are struggling? We will discuss ways to use your online educational platforms to your advantage and go all the way back to the basics of Executive Functioning to help get, and keep, your students engaged.
