  4. Supporting student Executive Function success in the classroom so that students feel motivated, engaged, self-regulated, and on-task

"BrainTracks helped teachers to take a step back and look at the broader issues that may be affecting students' success in many areas.

Curriculum and instruction are addressed in each of the workshops, allowing teachers to weave tools and strategies directly into the everyday lessons. The workshops provided concrete strategies that teachers can use immediately."
