Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: Executive Functioning Toolkit

This two-day workshop has been updated to give the workshop participant insight into how executive skills develop, how they contribute to student learning behavior, as well as provide multiple activities and strategies to support executive behavior in students. We will also provide a practical questionnaire assessment tool, specifically designed to support the process. This tool is designed by Maude Le Roux herself and participants on this course will have permission to copy it as many times as they like for the students they serve. Practical accommodations to classroom, therapy and lesson structure will be covered in detail as well as intervention strategies to promote executive skills in students. Learn a myriad of strategies for classroom, homework etc., including technology programs that can assist in organization. From pre-school to High School, ideas across the continuum will be shared! This is a “must have” workshop for educators, therapists and psychologists. Let’s be practical about it!

Dates:26 & 27 Nov 2020 (Thu & Fri)
Time:9.00am - 5.00pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT+0800)
Venue:Live Online Training
Speaker: Maude Le Roux OTR/L, IMC, SIPT, CTC, DIR-FT International Trainer

Maude Le Roux OTR/L is an international speaker considering a wide array of topics pertaining development in children. She has been a regular speaker at our events for the past 10 years. Even as she travels and trains extensively, she continues to operate a pediatric practice in Glen Mills, PA. Maude designs her own courses, as well as trains for other organizations such as ICDL (DIR/Floortime) globally. She serves on the Board for ATTACh to develop the consideration of attachment and trauma in the work of occupational therapists. Maude “re-energizes” as she teaches and inspires her listeners to feel the importance of the work they do. She co-authored a book, “Our Greatest Allies” with Lauren O’Malley, available on Amazon.com. Maude opened her own online academy (www.maudeleroux.com) in January 2019 to increase accessibility of practical “know-how” based on scientific theory for therapists, teachers and parents. Her mantra: ‘If a child could, he / she would!”
