Video Replay: “How Executive Functioning Deficits Impact Reading, Writing and Oral Language”

 

This virtual community workshop was recorded December 3, 2020 and presented by Groves Academy Speech-Language Pathologists Jeannie Parker, MS, CCC-SLP, ADHD-CE, and Meghan Miller, MS, CCC-SLP, ADHD-CE

Executive functioning skills are essential for many academic tasks. Not only are they key for focus, memory, work completion, organization, planning, time management, etc, but they impact important academic skills as well. Join us to learn how a student’s executive functioning deficits may be impacting their reading comprehension and ability to express themselves both verbally and in writing.
