Program Description

Event Details

Please join Darien SEPAC and Darien Library for a parent presentation on supporting your child’s development of executive functioning skills. 

Kit Savage will explain the neuroscience behind executive functioning skills and provide realistic parenting strategies, goals, and resources to help your child.  Understanding age-appropriate expectations empowers parents to collaborate with their teachers to improve their child’s school performance. 

All children struggle at times in school, but your child may need support if they regularly:

- Avoid getting started on homework;

- Resist checking their written work;

- Use cramming as their #1 (or only) study habit;

- Get lost navigating in Google Classroom and miss due dates;

- Struggle with the steps of the writing process;

- Become emotionally dysregulated when you discuss schoolwork.

Kit Savage is a certified Executive Functioning Coach and Special Education Advisor to families of children with disabilities and neurodiverse learning profiles. Her mission is to empower parents to ensure their child reaches their educational potential. She is a certified teacher of body-based practices of yoga, meditation and breathwork, which is embedded in the EF instruction for students up through college and into the workforce.
