WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

 

This workshop is targeted at parents and teachers who are interested in helping learners with SpLD to become more effective in managing their studies. SpLD learners tend to struggle more with school work due to the nature of their learning needs. They can also have co-occurring issues such as Attention Deficit which leads to poor focus and disorganisation. This workshop thus aims to help these parents and teachers understand the role of a key set of mental skills called executive function and how applying executive function strategies can help SpLd learners be more effective as students.
