Individuals with ADHD, Autism, OCD and other conditions have significant deficits with Executive Function (EF) skills, failing to thrive at school, work, home and in their most important relationships.
While your work with individuals struggling with EF issues is some of your most rewarding—it’s often the work that leaves you the most frustrated and exhausted. Forgotten appointments, unfinished homework, distractibility, procrastination, and difficulties organizing thoughts present formidable obstacles to making progress in school or therapy. And to make things more frustrating, the strategies that work so well for other conditions seem to fall short when an EF deficit is present.
Watch George McCloskey, Ph.D., an internationally renowned author, researcher, and clinician with more than 25 years of groundbreaking work with EFs for this incredible one-day event!
Dr. McCloskey will teach you the targeted skills and tools you need to cultivate lasting change and transformation in the lives of those who struggle with executive deficits—the chronically lost, late and unprepared!
You’ll learn how to develop customized interventions that can be used with students or clients of all ages across multiple settings from the private practice to the classroom. Practical and easy to apply, Dr. McCloskey’s strategies will help those you serve develop critical time/task management, personal organization, and planning skills, empowering them to elevate their academic and employment performance, relationships, physical and mental health, and more!
Don’t miss this chance to elevate your practice and confidence in your ability to end the chaos and dramatically improve the lives of those you work with!
