Don't miss this engaging, full-day seminar on Monday, September 23, 2013, featuring internationally acclaimed author Rebecca Moyes: "Practical Strategies for Addressing Executive Function Deficits in Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and NVLD."

You will leave with a "tool-box" of strategies that will empower you to reach and teach students with autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, and nonverbal learning disability, as well as those with emotional disturbance. Learn how to teach social skills, emotional control, and organizational skills, as well address working memory, motivation, and planning for students in grades K-12. Just a few of the seminar objectives include:

* Seminar attendees will be able to identify some executive function deficits and describe ways that they impact on student performance.

* Seminar attendees will be able to create "processes" to help students improve organizational skills.

* Seminar attendees will be able to describe ways to increase student motivation both intrinsically and extrinsically.

* Seminar attendees will be able to assist students in refraining from bluntness and improve behavioral inhibition.

*Seminar attendees will describe ways to teach self-control and good decision-making.
