Project Planning for people with EF deficits

Check out this email I received from my co-author, Carol Burmeister:

Hi Dr. Sheri,
 
I wanted to share a personal experience I had with my grandson last week.  I was helping him with his homework, which included preparing for a presentation on Ronald Reagan that he was expected to share in school on Friday.  He did research on his topic online and synthesized the information so that he could develop a presentation that included his findings and supporting evidence.  He made strategic use of digital media and visual displays to enhance understanding of his material.  He practiced his presentation skills at home before the big day.  On the day of the presentation, he impressed his teacher and his classmates who confirmed that he did a great job sharing his knowledge on the topic.  This experience with him made me thankful for the work that we have done on Project Mapping from FLIPP the Switch:  Powerful Strategies to Strengthen Executive Function Skills—that particular strategy definitely came in handy!  Oh—by the way—did I mention that my grandson is in kindergarten?

Carol's grandson is fortunate in that he has parents and grandparents who can help him develop a project that meets the requirements of the Common Core State Standards. However, for many individuals, planning a project to ensure it will be completed in time with all required components intact, can be extremely stressful. For someone with executive function deficits, the entire process can be totally overwhelming. That's where Project Mapping can be an invaluable tool in supporting the individual with EF deficits to visualize the steps needed to complete the project. This tool can be used by parents and educators and can be taught to students so that they can use it independently in the future.

Carol and I would like to make this super-effective planning tool available to readers of this blog for free during the month of February. If you would like to receive a copy of Project Mapping for free, please sign in on our Guest Book and type in "Project Mapping" in the comment section. Your free copy of Project Mapping will be sent out within the next week. If you know of anyone else who could benefit from this free resource, please have them sign into our Guest Book and we will gladly send them a free copy as well.

Have a great week and check back next week for another free resource for supporting individuals with executive function challenges.

Thank you, Mom for assisting Jake with this important project. John and I are very appreciative. Dr. Sheri, I can see the value of using this tool with younger learners as well as with the junior high school students in my world language classroom. Thank you for sharing it!
