BSEAC Presentation: "Executive Function Skills for Elementary Age"

The Executive Function Skills for Elementary Age– Feb 25, 2015 Parent Information Session

Agenda for the presentation:

  • 6:30pm – Meet and Greet (Refreshments by the BSEAC)
  • 7:00pm – Presentation
  • 8:15pm – Q&A
  • 8:30pm - End (We have to be out of the building at this time) 

Burbank Elementary School, in the Cafeteria, 266 School Street, Belmont MA 02478.  Drive down the narrow drive to the left of the school, park in the parking lot and come in the side entrance and follow the signs to the Cafeteria.

This presentation will be about executive function development, with a particular focus on elementary school-aged children and how parents can facilitate growth of executive function skills—skills they need to become successful, independent learners. The evening’s focus will be to show parents tools to prepare their children for an increasingly complex world by providing them the keys to productivity and independence.

Jackie Stachel, MS CCC-SLP, Senior Coach & Director of Public Relations for Beyond BookSmart, an Executive Function Coaching Company.
Jackie leads executive function presentations for parent groups, teachers, and mental health professionals. She earned her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University and worked at Needham High School for five years in that capacity. In 2009, she co-created the Insight Program, a special education initiative at NHS to support students with diagnoses such as Asperger syndrome,ADHD, and Nonverbal Learning Disability to address social thinking challenges as they relate to academic success and transitioning to the adult world, post high school. As a coach, she specializes in helping students develop writing and study skills, as well as supporting perspective-taking to help anticipate teacher expectations.

 Note: Jackie presented the Top 10 Executive Function skills last year and was very well received.  We invited her back this year to focus on Elementary students.  Mark your calendars you don't want to miss her a second time.
