Teachers, specialists, private practitioners, nurses and community agencies came together on November 8th to learn about executive functioning, how it plays out in the lives of individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and how to best serve students in our schools and our community.

“This conference was so energizing!  Dr. Turkstra helped clarify my understanding of executive functions and she also reinforced my knowledge of the power of peer mentors.  I’m trying to wrap my head around how all this exciting information ties into collaborative problem solving.   I can’t wait to share all that I’ve learned!” — Wendy Beall, HDESD Autism Consultant

Lyn Turkstra, a researcher in Speech Pathology and TBI was our facilitator and teacher throughout the day.  If you want more information about her presentation, you can find it here:  Executive Functioning
