Close the %#@* door! Executive Mis-Functioning and Other Fun Side Effects of Neurodiversity
Does this sound familiar: Kitchen cabinet doors open 24/7? Leaving to run errands and your child forgot her shoes? Taking 762 minutes to gather all the supplies needed to work on a project?

Join this chat to learn more about executive functioning skills and strategies to improve them in your child (and maybe yourself!).
