October AuSM Skillshop focus on executive function
The Oct. 6 AuSM Skillshop, held at Lionsgate Academy in Crystal, Minn. from 7-9 p.m., will focus on executive functions, a variety of “higher-order” mental processes and behaviors that help the brain organize and act on information. These skills enable a person to plan, organize, remember things, prioritize, pay attention, and get started on tasks. In this AuSM Skillshop presented by Mary Beth Kelley, learn strategies and interventions for the different executive functioning areas. The focus will be on students in grades K-12. Kelley, a professional who oversees the Learning Disability Association’s assessment program, has been in the field of special education since 1990, serving in a variety of roles in public schools as well as non-profit settings.
