It is often assumed that anxiety will disappear if the student just sits down and does the homework assignment. Why then, after supervised repetition, modeling, role-playing and tutoring do executive skill behaviors not stick for some students? Why is change so difficult? Why does anxiety, like a tsunami, overcome a student when he or she is faced with a writing task or test?
In this presentation speech pathologist, author and neurotherapist at the Hallowell Center of Sudbury, Mass., Rebecca Shafir, explains why emotional self-regulation needs to precede executive functioning training or tutoring. Rebecca will present effective alternative and complementary approaches and strategies for helping students manage stress associated with learning to get things done.
