Raising children who are resilient, persistent and act as strong self-advocates is a universal goal for parents/guardians and teachers. Those traits all rely on executive function, a developmental path related to the cognitive skills children use to organize, plan, and sustain efforts toward future goals.

Mark Bertin, MD, developmental pediatrician, will guide parents/ guardians and educators to address the essential questions: How can adults teach children of all grades to self-advocate, while making sure they thrive and stay self-confident on the way?
