Smart, but Scattered Workshop

Dayton Christian Schools is offering an Educational Workshop, a  2-part DVD series by Dr. Peg Dawson (author of “Smart but Scattered”),  in September. The seminar addresses “Children who have deficient executive skills often have trouble getting started on tasks, get distracted easily, lose papers, or assignments and forget to hand in homework. They make careless mistakes, put off work until the last-minute and have no sense of time urgency. Workspaces are disorganized and teachers often refer to their backpacks or lockers as “black holes.” Often considered chronic underachievers, these children are at risk for academic failure as well as emotional and  behavioral difficulties. Dr. Dawson, co-author of the best-selling Executive Skills in Children and Adolescents (2nd Edition) and Smart but Scattered, uses case examples along with interactive discussion to demonstrate how the executive skills manifest in daily home and school activities. Learn how to assess these skills and take home evidence based strategies to help children and adolescents overcome executive skills weaknesses.”

This seminar will be held at the Dayton Christian campus: Part 1-Monday, September 21, 2015- 5:30-8pm Part 2- Monday, September 28, 2015- 5:30-8pm
