Summer is a time for relaxation and fun, but it's also a time when students can experience learning loss if they don't stay engaged in educational activities. Here are the top 10 summer activities that can help avoid learning loss and keep students engaged:
1. Executive Function Training: Start your customized Play Attention program and take advantage of this time to improve executive function and self-regulation. If your child has struggled academically or socially, now is the time to start developing the cognitive skills required for strong executive function. You will be assigned a personal executive function coach to help you plan a fun, motivating, and successful Play Attention program this summer! Plan now.
