Presentations

This presentation offers specific, practical motivational strategies to address the most common executive function difficulties, based on a concept called Educational Therapy. Educational Therapy (ET) is not tutoring, but instead is a holistic, brain-based approach that encompasses the whole child, addressing emotional, social and educational concerns.
