Introduction to Executive Function – Be the Boss of Your Brain

January 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Learn about harnessing executive function!

This is an in-person program.

Does your student struggle with things like time management, planning, self-monitoring, and organization? Then this conversation is for you. These are called Executive Function skills, and you’re not alone. Carrie Bonnett, Executive Function Coach, will offer an introduction to these cognitive skills – the ones that help us get things done. And she’ll share some strategies that help support brains. This presentation is designed for parents of school-age children, but older high school and college students are also welcome.

Carrie Bonnett is a veteran teacher and lifelong list-maker. She is an Executive Function Coach based in Bend, Oregon, where she lives with her husband and two children. Carrie works with students and families all over the world. Her no-shame approach and the strategies she teaches empower students to thrive in life and school, help parents and teachers to better support their children, and help adults stay on top of all that life requires. In addition to coaching, she is also an adjunct instructor for early-career teachers at University of Portland in Oregon.
