May 28th, 2024 – Scaffolding Executive Functioning Skills in the STEM Classroom

Executive Functioning skills are critical to our ability to perform well in school. Working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control are all components of executive functioning students need to learn. In this workshop we are joined by Kelly Lohkemper, certified psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner who works with children and adults in the neurodivergent community to discuss how we can support executive functioning in STEM Classrooms. We will provide practical tips and tools teachers can use in their classroom to support engagement in STEM.
