Workshop on executive functioning in students

LACONIA — A workshop to provide a clearer understanding of certain procedures that apply to students with learning and attention issues will be held Tuesday, April 21, from 5:50 to 7 p.m. at Lakes Region Community Services, 719 North Main St.

The free workshop, say organizers, will cover what are technically called Executive Functions -- skills that people use every day to plan ahead, stay organized, solve problems and focus. Children who have deficits in these areas struggle at home and in school.

This workshop will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of how executive functioning impacts children educationally, and how a Section 504 Plan and / or an Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P.) can address these needs in order to support their learning.

Pre-Registration is required and can be done through Lakes Region Community Services by contacting Karen McDowell at 603-524-8811, est. 1544, or emailing her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
