Note to Parents from Instructor, Jacy:

 Dear Parents, Executive Functions (EF) are a set of skills that have been proven to impact our ability to be successful both socially and academically.  These skills include staying organized, planning ahead, and prioritizing among many others.  Giving your children direct instruction in these areas can help them to fulfill their potential by allowing them to express their abilities more effectively and efficiently.  Whether your children are excelling in life on their own, or if they are more successful with support, everyone has something to learn when it comes to EF.
