We are all aware that the pandemic of 2020 brought to light inequities in education that have persisted for the past 20 years. Our challenge now is that the magnification of such dilemmas calls for immediate science-based actions. In this presentation, Pediatric Psychologist, Dr. Lynne Kenney integrates research and practice from psychology, cognitive science, public health, education, kinesiology, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy to provide a uniquely actionable perspective on the application of executive function, social-emotional, and sensory-motor skills poised to shift a generation of learners. We spend billions of dollars on academic curriculum, when our time, energy, and resources are better spent on cognitive skill-building, social-emotional learning, phonology, numeracy, physical literacy, and mental health services for all.
