Event | Executive Function: What is it and how does it impact my child at home and at school?

The Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council in coordination with Dr. Alisa Talamo presents a free workshop to parents and professionals:

What is Executive Function and how does it impact my child at home and at school?

Executive function is a set of mental skills that help you get things done. Executive functioning allows us to do many things including making plans, finishing work on time, keeping track of more than one thing at a time, and evaluating ideas and asking for help when needed. In this presentation, parents will learn how to recognize if their child is struggling in this area and they will be provided strategies that are effective in helping a child with executive functioning challenges.

After receiving her undergraduate degree from Columbia University, Dr. Talamo earned her doctorate in clinical health psychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University.

She has given a number of presentations, most recently on “How to Recognize a Struggling Reader,” “Supporting Students with Working Memory Limitations,” (with Bonnie Singer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP of Architects for Learning ), and “Executive Function in Elementary and Middle School Students.”

Dr. Talamo specializes in working with children and adolescents with language-based learning disabilities including dyslexia, attentional disorders, executive functioning deficits, and emotional issues.

Her professional memberships include IDA (International Dyslexia Association), MABIDA (the Massachusetts division of IDA), and MNS (the Massachusetts Neuropsychological Society).

She is the mother of one teenage girl.

The event takes place on March 26, 2019 from 7-9pm at the Cameron Middle School 215 Elm Street Framingham, MA.
