Attend this webinar to:
- Learn about the important roles of executive function in your brain – sustained attention, working memory, impulse inhibition and planning, to name a few
- Uncover why some people excel in focus and planning while others appear scattered
- Understand executive function’s “growth spurt” in the preschool years and continuous development through life
- Take home 3 research-based strategies to help your learner build strong executive function in the brain
Your executive function, sitting at the front part of your brain, has also been named the “brain’s CEO”. Indeed, this is one busy CEO with many important tasks to manage on a daily basis. Apart from keeping you focused, your executive function helps you to plan, organise, control your impulses and adjust your thoughts and actions to unexpected changes, just to name a few of its jobs. It is also responsible for your working memory, hence influencing your learning, performance and intelligence.
Gain the latest insights on this important brain system, and more importantly, how to help your learners develop stronger executive function. Like a muscle, your brain can be trained to become fitter and stronger. Join us to understand what it takes for parents and teachers to build up this important brain muscle, and pave the way for your learners to succeed and thrive in life.
