Raising Capable Kids:
A Seminar for Pro-Active Parents 
Expert Tips to Grow Executive Function Skills at Home

"The single greatest predictor of academic success is executive function. 
It even trumps IQ."  -John Medina, Brain Rules
Here’s what parents can do about it.  
Executive function skills are high-level mental processes that allow us to regulate behavior over time in order to achieve long-term goals.  Nurturing these skills from a young age can have a bigger impact on your child’s education and long-term well-being than other factors - including IQ, school choice, or delaying kindergarten.  
Yes, it’s that important.  

This practical seminar empowers parents to sow the seeds of executive function at home, when kids are youngand more excited about parental involvement - when opportunities to make a big difference abound.  

Combining 20 years of experience in K-12 schools with expertise in learning disabilities, ADHD, executive function and child development, Dan Leibowitz,  M.Ed., M.Sped., C.E.T. offers proven advice for nurturing kids’ executive skills and problem-solving abilities in our hurried, distracted world.
