    Community Book Study at The de Paul School with Head of School Dr. Laurie Bottiger (Part 1: Reading) 

    Facilitated by de Paul Head of School Dr. Laurie Bottiger

    Join Dr. Bottiger as we read and discuss the text,” Late, Lost, and Unprepared: A Parent's Guide to Helping Children with Executive Functioning” written by Joyce Cooper-Kahn and Laurie Dietzell. Executive functioning involves skill sets that help us organize all parts of our lives.  In a busy world which includes continuous stimulation and distraction, it becomes challenging for all of us to stay focused and live beyond the continuous noise.  Cooper and Dietzell’s text provide us with practical strategies to understand and support our children who live with ADHD. Our discussions will be oriented toward “What we need to know” and “What we need to do”. The kickoff will be held on February 1 and the final discussion on February 22.
