Do your kids ever struggle with following directions, beginning a task, managing their time, or organizing their stuff? Do you get frustrated when they respond to these tasks with anxiety, disengagement, or avoidance? Executive function expert Alexis Reid will help us understand what these behaviors signal and how we can best support all children proactively to promote and build strong executive function skills.
Alexis Reid is an author, speaker, educational therapist, learning consultant, and podcast host who specializes in executive function coaching, social emotional learning, teaching and development, as well as designing flexible and accessible learning and environments through Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Alexis has published numerous research papers and articles and has a forthcoming book expected this winter, Empowering Strategic Learning Through Executive Function & UDL. Through her work as an educator in various capacities for nearly two decades, Alexis has honed her skills to support individuals and systems at the intersections of well-being and learning.
