As schools shift to remote learning, trust SMARTS for resources to support the executive function needs of all students, with or without ADHD, dyslexia, or other learning differences.
Support for Teachers and Students
Are you a SMARTS educator? Join us for our upcoming SMARTS Conversations as we explore how to use executive function strategies to teach time management strategies that are engaging and effective. You can find the invite in your user newsletter, but contact Michael Greschler, [email protected], if you can’t find it.
Interested in learning more about how SMARTS can help you? Contact us for more info and materials.
What about students? Many students are struggling to adapt to their new daily reality. We’re a big fan of executive function coaching in the best of times, but the uncertainty students are dealing with makes one on one coaching even more crucial. Contact our sister organization, the Institute for Learning and Development for more information.
SMARTS is also proud to announce that we recently collaborated with Google for their “Teach from Home” collection of tools and tips for educators and families. If you are using any of the Google apps to teach, there are tons of great suggestions here on accessibility and interactive teaching (including a great EF Checklist from your favorite EF program, SMARTS).Check it out!
