Understanding Executive Functioning
Presented by OTA Wakefield

Wednesday, March 9th
7:00-9:00pm
(doors open at 6:45)
Marion Tavern

Ever wonder what executive functioning is? 
When kids have issues with executive functioning, any task that requires planning, organization, memory, time management and flexible thinking becomes a challenge.
The more you know about the challenges, the better you’ll be able to help your child build executive skills and manage the difficulties.
Join us for a discussion about what executive functions are and how they impact learning and everyday living.
We hope you can join us for what's shaping up to be a very informative night!

*In addition, Jessica Reedy from the Burlington Youth & Family Services Center will be there for an introduction to their services.
