FOSB’s SED Committee Presents: Conversations from Seth Perler’s TEFOS (The Executive Functioning Online Summit)

The FOSB’s Special Education and Disability (SED) Committee will be hosting viewings of Seth Perler’s TEFOS (The Executive Function Online Summit) every other week beginning on October 6.

TEFOS was a free, online summit that ran in August 2021, featuring leading experts in education, pediatric psychology, neuroscience, and parent coaching who offer information and strategies to support kids who struggle with Executive Functioning (which includes planning & organization, emotional regulation, homework, attention and more).

From the TEFOS website:

Parents often say, ‘I just want my child to be happy and successful,’ but knowing how to help a child who is struggling can be completely baffling, especially if they resist help. So if your child struggles with the skills needed to get important school and life stuff done, and you’re proactive, join our FREE 3-Day Online Immersion event, and learn exceptional strategies, from leading experts who ‘get’ outside-the-box kids and Executive Function. These are not your typical ‘parenting tips’, they are unconventional, practical, and can revolutionize how you support your child. And yes, teachers, therapists, grandparents and others are welcome.”

FOSB’s SED Committee purchased access and additional viewing licenses to share this incredible lineup of speakers with our school community. We’ve selected some of our favorites to share with the Salmon Bay community. More info on the TEFOS Summit and a complete list of experts and topics can be found here.

All viewings will begin at 7:00pm and will be followed by a short discussion with those who attend. Zoom links will be provided closer to the date. Check back here.
