Finding Executive Function in Your Pyramid Model Classroom: The Secret Ingredient You Didn’t Know You Had

This webinar teaches about how early educators can foster the growth of social-emotional development through the unique lens of executive skill development. The presentation will describe how classroom teachers can a) facilitate the trajectory of executive skills relevant to social-emotional development, b) influence the practices of families of young children to better develop social-emotionally specific executive skills, and c) better shape the success of children after their transition to kindergarten by intentionally equipping them with these necessary skills.
