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.
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.
