GEAR's Coffee and Conversation Series
April 11, 2014
What is Everyone Talking About?
Aaron J. Vaughn, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
Sycamore High School Senior
Blue Ash Elementary School, UC Education Wing
9541 Plainfield Road
(Overflow Parking in Adjacent UC Blue Ash Lot)
Please join us
for an informed discussion as Dr. Vaughn unfolds issues with Executive Functioning in children and adolescents in all levels of the learning spectrum, and not specifically related to the gifted population. Learn how a student's challenge with executive function may affect motivation (initiating daily tasks/ homework), learning and memorization, problem-solving, completing academic tasks independently, and planning ahead. Dr. Vaughn will also provide an overview of interventions to promote, develop, and improve academic functioning in each of these areas.
At the conclusion of Dr. Vaughn's presentation at approximately 11:00am, we welcome Krittika Chatterjee as she shares her personal journey with Executive Functioning Disorder (EFD).
This Sycamore GEAR program is free and open to the public. Bring a friend and enjoy your morning coffee with us!
