When:  February 5th, 2018

Time:  8:00 pm - 9:15 pm.

Place:  Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, NJ

Topic: Executive Functioning Issues:  What to DO about it?

With all the talk about executive functioning  (EF) issues, we hear less about what will help our youngsters and ourselves.  Learning about the available approaches, and strategies can help those struggling with EF function issues to become better orchestra leaders for their issues with: time management, procrastination, organization, prioritizing and planning.  Learn about several research-based approaches and how to implement them.
