Executive functioning weaknesses impact a large number of children and adolescents. As a result, they often have difficulty planning, organizing, coping, thinking through cause and effect, and regulating their emotions. They may be difficult to handle and support in the classroom and therapy room, due to their angry outbursts and emotional tirades. When children are struggling to manage ADHD and anger, they are less able to focus on the academic tasks expected of them in classroom settings.
Dr. Aimee Kotrba will use evidence-based research, videos, and interactive learning to help participants understand effective techniques for reducing anger and supporting children with executive functioning weakness.
