Research shows that executive function skills affect school readiness, school success, college graduation rates, work and life success; and these skills can be taught and encouraged at any age.  These monthly sessions (2 hour information session with a 1 hour "coaching" follow up session) focus on fun, everyday activities, including using children's books, that educators and providers can use to promote and support the development of an essential executive function skill.

Critical Thinking is the ongoing search for valid and reliable knowledge to guide beliefs, decision, and actions.  Critical Thinking follows a developmental path, emerging in children over time, but its use must be promoted.
