Do you know a child who is chronically late? Disorganized? Who cannot prioritize and is unable to get started on projects, even when those projects are important? A child who struggles to keep track of his or her belongings and the work they need to do?

Join parents, teachers, and clinicians as we learn how to strengthen children’s executive functioning. These simple and effective techniques will help children of all ages with academic engagement, social skills, and communication. International expert, Paula Moraine has worked extensively with students on issues related to executive function, attention, and language processing. In this presentation, she will discuss interventions that will improve attention, organization, memory, and time management.

Paula Moraine, M.Ed. is in private practice in Bel Air, MD as a teacher, tutor, coach, and mentor for students of all ages, addressing issues related to Dyslexia, ADHD, Executive Function, Autism, and other academic challenges. She has lived and taught in the US, Europe, and Great Britain. Ms. Moraine has lectured and presented workshops for many years on themes of education, parenting, child development, ADHD, and executive function. Her recent books are "Helping Students Take Control of Everyday Executive Functions - The Attention Fix” and “Autism and Everyday Executive Function”.

Co-sponsored by the Special Education Citizens’ Advisory Committee of Prince George’s County Public Schools (SECAC-PG) and the Prince George’s County Public Schools Department of Special Education.
