Executive Function - Who Needs it Anyway?

  • Diamonhead Education Center 200 Burnsville Parkway Burnsville, MN, 55337 United States (map)

Executive Function- sounds important right? And it is. Turns out it’s our ability to regulate thoughts, actions and emotions. Which are all super important for us to lead productive, fulfilling lives as adults. Learn more about this important predictor of academic and life success through interviews, discussion and humor.

Leading our panel is Stephanie Carlson, a Distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota,  and co-founder of Reflection Sciences. She conducts research on the development of executive function including how to measure it in children as young as age 2; what to expect of children of different ages and life experiences; what distinguishes children who have better or worse executive function; and how to improve these critical skills that predict greater achievement in many areas of life.
