Groves Academy will host an LD/ADHD symposium entitled "Smart but Scattered: Executive Dysfunction at Home and at School" on February 14, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year's speakers are Peg Dawson, Ed.D, NCSP and Richard Guare, Ph.D, D-BCBA, who are co-authors of Smart but Scattered.

This full-day symposium will help participants understand executive function skills and brain development, be familiar with assessment strategies, and identify how executive skills impact school success and daily living. Most importantly, participants will learn a variety of strategies to improve executive function skills in students.

Executive skills refer to the cognitive processes required to plan and organize activities, including task initiation and follow through, planning/organization, working memory, inhibition of impulses, and self-regulation. Executive function skills are often lacking for individuals who struggle with learning disabilities, ADHD and other neurological disorders.
