Tri-State Webinar: Unstuck and On Target! Part 1 of 2


October 24, 2018 from 3:30 to 4:15 pm

Description: 

In this series, Dr. Anthony will discuss on Executive Functioning difficulties in the classroom and in social situations. In the Executive Functioning webinar, she will pay particular attention to distinguishing what a student "can't" do from what a student "won't" do, and how to turn those "cant's" into "cans". In Unstuck and On Target! Parts 1 & 2 Dr. Anthony will cover the basics of implementing her "Unstuck and On Target!" intervention. "Unstuck and On Target!" is a ready-to-use, empirically-supported curriculum written with the contribution of teachers, students and parents in order to help children with ASD learn cognitive flexibility and other executive function skills through fun and engaging lessons designed to be used in schools. Dr. Anthony will provide tips and tools you can use immediately.

Learner Objectives:

  1. Increase your understanding of how to identify and teach executive functioning skills and accommodate executive functioning weaknesses
  2. Describe the evidence we have that teaching these skills works well for elementary-aged students
  3. Learn how to teach specific flexibility and planning skills using scripts or vocabulary and other tools

Who Should Attend

Administrators, general education teachers, specialist teachers, family members, paraprofessionals, special education professionals, and related service providers.
