2016-2017 ESC-20 FREE Parent Trainings
Our 2016-2017 parent trainings are scheduled and will begin in September! This year we are offering a free parent training each week. Most of them are during the week in the mornings, but we have added some evening and sessions. Attached is an electronic version of the brochure. I am very excited of the broad range of topics we are able to offer this school year that addresses many hot topics for all ages and student needs! Please help get the word out!
Please note: In the past we’ve always had a Spanish interpreter available at all trainings. This year, we will provide a Spanish interpreter if it is requested. You will notice under the parent training description the deadline that we need to know if an interpreter is needed. Thank you in advance for your help with this!

What is Executive Functioning?
An executive functioning issue is difficulty organizing oneself to accomplish tasks. Kids with these issues often have trouble planning ahead, prioritizing, self-correcting, starting activities and shifting from one task to another. Sometimes referred to as executive functioning disorder. You will encounter students that struggle with these issues. This article addresses some easy tips on color-coding to help students plan ahead and organize. It can be helpful for you to have some of these tools to share with students and their families to continue the support at home!
