Sarah Ward, MS, CCC-SLP
Co-Director, Cognitive Connections LLP, Boston
Sarah Ward, MS, CCC-SLP, is coming to Lethbridge to teach hands-on practical strategies to improve Executive Function skills. Whether you've seen Sarah Ward before, or this is all new, you're sure to walk away with practical strategies to help you better assist clients, students, or your own children, that you can implement immediately.
Through demonstration and practice, you will learn how to teach students the following executive control skills: awareness; forethought; waiting and planning skills; shifting; pacing; flexibility; speed of information processing.
Individuals with strong executive function skills stay a beat ahead. Strong executive function skills enable us to imagine and plan a "dry run" of the task in our mind before we begin to carry out the plan. When forethought guides children's actions, they can carry out tasks more successfully
