Solid executive functions are often the most important variable for strong academic growth in students. While some gifted students are endowed with both strong intellect and executive functions, there is increasing evidence that many gifted students demonstrate inconsistent performance in school primarily due to deficits in one or more areas of executive functions development.

Join us to hear Dr. Christopher Bogart share compelling current research relating to executive functions and giftedness. He will also share an emerging viewpoint that while children may have an innate predisposition for differing levels of executive functions development, these critical neurological skills can be strengthened through many different daily activities at home and at school.

Speaker: Christopher M. Bogart, PhD, Executive Director of the Southfield Center for Development. He is a licensed clinical psychologist who works with children, adolescents and parents, conducting comprehensive psychoeducational and AD/HD evaluations as well as therapy services.
