welcome
MPritchett
36:17
will we get the recorded session at the conclusion this evening?
Tricia
36:38
to Natalie yes I can see you signing. thanks
Syko Family
37:09
can you spotlight?
Karyn
38:25
Is this appropriate for kids to join here? We are watching this for our first grade and are wondering if we should invite him to watch or if this is geared towards adults.
Heath
38:26
how do I mute my face?
Grace
38:51
The button should be next to the mute button, it looks like a camera.
Lisa Kennedy
39:04
To mute your face you can click on view, upper right and chose how you want to view! Also what Grace said!;)
MPritchett
41:18
will we get the recorded session at the conclusion this evening?
Karen Jensen
41:21
This will be geared more to adults, but there won't be anything inappropriate for kids!
Karen Jensen
41:27
The session is being recorded!
Mishele Carroll
42:52
@MPritchett--The recorded session will be available on our Jeffo Mental Health and Wellness Hub webpage by early next week.
MPritchett
43:55
thank you!
Michelle Stone
44:01
I've worked in child psych for 3+ decades. Since the introduction of the internet/social media our kids are bombarded with data management and EF issues have skyrocketed. Do you see a connection?
Christine Samsel
49:08
Will the PowerPoint be made available to attendees?
Mishele Carroll
50:08
@Christine--We will work with Dr Dawson to see if she can provide a handout of the slides.
Sara Frederickson
50:21
Can others turn off the videos so I can see the ASL interpreter clearly? It's kinda distracting seeing other people doing other things.
Caron Westland
51:30
if you pin the interpreter, everyone else will disappear (upper right corner of her box). It'll really help
Mishele Carroll
51:39
@sara--do you know how to minimize the view and pin the interpreter?
Sara Frederickson
52:18
I like seeing the speaker and the interpreter so I can see Dr Peg's face expression. But that's ok. Its all good
Tanya Wentwotrh
54:11
Please be courteous and mute
Rosalie
54:47
What book is the anxiety book?
Estella
55:17
yes!! I was just about to recommend that one!
Justin
56:22
I think that was "sitting still like a frog"
Meredith’s iPhone
56:39
the video must be distracting to those trying to see the interpreter in the same way hearing background noise is to hearing participants
Sara Frederickson
57:01
Meredith --- yes!
Lance Nozot
57:05
agreed
Grace
57:35
Sometimes zoom unmutes people when their connection is being wack
Grace
57:54
Not entirely their fault lol
Meredith’s iPhone
59:18
🙂
Aneta Rettig
59:46
Is there a teacher session scheduled for tomorrow? are they all attending? would love to pass the info along to our teachers in case not all of them were notified.
Mishele Carroll
01:00:18
Yes! there are two teachers sessions tomorrow--one for secondary and one for elementary
Claire
01:00:55
Would love to have the teacher recording as well. Many of us are teaching at home now.
Aneta Rettig
01:01:23
can we get some info to pass along?
F9FD8N44MF3M
01:01:45
can everyone please mute again
Tracey
01:01:46
I am interested in the teacher sessions as well
Melissa Kirkpatrick
01:02:59
Host controls can mute all
Patty Laushman
01:03:02
OMG, I figured this out by accident! "What is your plan?" is a common question in our household.
Allison Poley
01:03:10
I am also interested in the teacher sessions.
Debbie Berschling
01:04:04
For Task Initiation, I find following up on those time-start prompts much easier with physical tasks versus school assignments. Any tips to make sure they’re really starting vs. just staring at the blank screen not able to take the first step?
Justin
01:04:13
the slides or recording would be valudable resources to the parents who are helping jeffco students, also.
Karen Jensen
01:07:16
Me, too Peg!
Sue Ferrere
01:07:19
so true!
Tiffany Glass
01:07:32
Same.
Heather Goff
01:07:33
Peg, I'm with you too. :)
Viktoryia Wall
01:07:52
any good books on Organization?
Michele MacLeod
01:08:37
good organizational book: That crumpled paper was due last week
Viktoryia Wall
01:08:41
and what if a mom is the only orginized person in the fam lol???
Aneta Rettig
01:08:54
I kind of like science fairs myself....my kids not so much
Linda Helms
01:09:04
That is true, we are always in a hurry.
Kelly Appleton
01:09:12
My 3rd grader attends a school that has put an emphasis on this.
Mary LeMier
01:11:36
I'm looking for help and recommendations for engaging a teen that is not open to help from his parents. Any tips?
Michelle
01:11:51
Is anyone else having trouble with the audio cutting in and out?
Syko Family
01:13:27
@Michelle, not over here
N Yanasak
01:13:28
Peg Dawson offers a Smart but Scattered for Teens book. Sometimes reading it rather than hearing it from a parent works
Bryan DesMarteau
01:16:53
yes! thank you!
Joe
01:18:54
not seeing the image change
Lucy
01:18:57
I still see 4 years old...
Viktoryia Wall
01:18:57
i dont see it
Syko Family
01:18:58
the image is still on age 4
Ellene Duffy
01:19:00
same here
N Yanasak
01:19:02
Same

Karen Jensen
01:19:09
It's the color changing:)
Tiffany Glass
01:19:12
I don’t see an image.
Estella
01:19:45
here's the link: https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/09/15/health/20080915-brain-development.html
Hannah Brown FRCC (she/her)
01:19:47
I believe the website is https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/09/15/health/20080915-brain-development.html
Nicole Croy
01:19:48
my screen is showing the fourth grade education cartoon still
Estella
01:20:32
doing live demos is tricky on zoom
Michelle
01:20:52
Isn't technology fun??
Mishele Carroll
01:20:55
And we even tested it first!
Syko Family
01:21:00
haha
Joe
01:21:07
The image requires Flash which is no longer supported on in most browsers
Jen Wilson
01:21:16
when I try the web link it says something about installing flash
Elisabeth
01:21:30
its looks like the nytimes brain website is flash enabled- and unfortunately flash no longer works as of December 2020
Tanya Wentwotrh
01:21:55
Any thoughts on elementary schools that have a no homework policy? I like no homework but I worry about the lack of preparedness at the Middle school level
Jessica
01:22:14
Yes I have a question. How do you get a chd to start something they dont want to start bc they get too intimidated and give up before they try?
Jessica
01:22:23
child opps
Jessica
01:23:56
That is what I am doing now :).
Jessica
01:25:00
And I can't get help from the school because they say he is only 1 grade level behind. The special education teacher said in front of him I know you are smart in think you are just playing dumb and being lazy 😭
Estella
01:25:21
yes thank you!
Rhonda Flath
01:25:26
That breaks my heart - I'm so sorry
Michele MacLeod
01:25:59
this happened to my HS son who has ADHD--so heartbreaking!!
Debbie Berschling
01:26:20
How can you tell that your child exhibits ADD or ADHD vs. what seems like typical development? We aren’t behind or failing but it does seem to impact his potential and I hear that he just needs to try harder. It’s not that he isn’t trying…
Toni Myles
01:27:58
You can work with his DR and have him tested. Once you have a diagnosis you must fight hard with the school to get a 504
Sarah Nelson
01:28:18
What about kids with choice paralysis?
Toni Myles
01:28:27
Be prepared to fight at least 2 x a year or more to keep teachers following the 504
Michelle
01:29:08
My child has a 504 and I have not had that experience, thankfully.
N Yanasak
01:29:17
A good strategy for choice paralysis is to list the benefits/drawbacks of each and ask which of the benefits they want
Jen Wilson
01:29:50
Is altering the environment to accommodate my ASD/gifted 7 y.o. delaying the development of these skills or will he be able to work on them on his own schedule (asynchronous)?
Karen Jensen
01:31:36
Jen we will add this to the list of questions but doing that with your child now is teaching life skills -- even we as adults use those types of accommodations
Estella

Linda Helms
01:36:34
Good ideas. Thank you!
Tiffany Glass
01:37:21
Will these charts be included as PDFs?
Jessica
01:37:22
Thank you it is heartbreaking.
Brady White
01:37:31
if I have a teen, should I still get both of your books?
Jessica
01:37:37
thank you so much these are so helpful!
Karen Jensen
01:38:21
@Brady, the Teen book is great if you just have adolescents. the examples are specific to that age group. But, if you think your children may be much further behind on these skills, then the other book might be helpful
Jen Wilson
01:38:24
so much good information and so many useful too.
Linda Helms
01:38:35
Thank you. So informative I will purchase the book.
Jen Wilson
01:38:39
tools. thank you!
Linda Helms
01:41:16
Where can we watch this presentation again?
Stephenie Buehrle
01:41:43
Declarative Language is great for those observational statements!
Mishele Carroll
01:41:52
The recording will be posted on the Jeffco Mental Health and Wellness Hub webpage early next week
Drew
01:42:27
Can you post the presentation separately?
Karen Jensen
01:43:04
@Drew yes, we can do that
Drew
01:43:11
Thanks!!
Sara Porter
01:46:34
Peg, thank you very much for this
Linda Helms
01:46:41
Thank you so much!
Molly Ostwald (she/her)
01:47:06
Thank you
Spangler Family
01:47:07
Are the slides available for parents to print?
Syko Family
01:47:15
Thank you so much.. This was interesting and helpful :)

Lucy
01:48:44
I would love some advice on parenting one child who has excellent executive functioning and one who really is challenged, ages 8 & 9 1/2.
Meredith Frank
01:48:47
Thank you!
Caron Westland
01:49:20
what strategies would you put in place to help teens manage their own social media vs. parents putting the limits and controls in place?
Debra Evans
01:49:24
Thank you so much...there was such good information. I will be getting the book.
Jessica
01:50:36
My question is my son fell apart and is failing right now bc he was used to the discipline at school and now doesn't have that. I feel like the teacher but I work and dont have time constantly be checking if he is doing his work. Our relationship is failing right now bc he has. even lying to me about completing assignments. I have tried to help him problem solving and note taking but he still doesn't do it. I want to have a relationship and not be nagging him all the time. What do I do? He is a 6th grader.
Sarah Nelson
01:52:21
Amen! I have ADHD, too!
Michelle
01:52:36
My son sounds a lot like the boy you mentioned earlier. He has been diagnosed with Tourette's as well as ADHD. He has a 504 at school and very supportive teachers so he manages it very well; however he still struggles quite a bit with EF skills. Is there anything else we should be doing for him other than practicing the skills you teach?
Estella
01:52:40
I know many adults over 40 with underdeveloped PFCs - ha!
Sue Ferrere
01:53:06
The original Smart but Scattered talks a lot about matches and mis-matches in EF between kids and parents. Super helpful.
Michele MacLeod
01:53:23
I HAVE ADD and so does my son! I have learned it is a TRAIT not a DISORDER:)
Viktoryia Wall
01:54:37
I am a mom of a high schooler. is it a good idea to check if the work is done ?
N Yanasak
01:55:13
Jessica, is your son lying to you about completing assignments because he is afraid of something, like you getting mad at him if he doesn’t complete it? Might not be, just a thought.
Amy Downs
01:56:26
Can we get copies of the slides??
Karen Jensen
01:57:14
@Amy, yes, we can post those as well
Christine Samsel
01:57:53
Thank you! Very helpful info.
Bryan Palmintier
01:57:54
Most of these start with a kid who will listen and respond back. any tips if even minor challenges cause a child to shut down and be unable to engage (crying or curling up in a ball or storming off to room)
Jen Wilson
01:57:58
thank you. he struggles with transitions so we limit them.
Aneta Rettig
01:58:11
for a child that has a lot of lagging executive skills, would you focus on one first and work on it for a long time? or should we work on all ?
Jessica
01:59:50
No the first time he started lying was because he said it was because he didnt know how to do it, but he didnt ask his teacher for help he just chose not to do it or ask for help.
Lisa Kennedy
01:59:54
Peg, so wonderful to see you! I learn something new from you every time I have the privilege to hear/see you!!
Zan Johns
02:00:38
Excellent and helpful presentation and discussion. Thank you all.
N Yanasak
02:00:44
A lot of kids struggle with asking for help, unfortunately
Jessica
02:01:24
Thank you so much this was so helpful and you did an amazing job!
N Yanasak
02:01:47
A lot of roadblocks that kids create for themselves in their lives come from fear
Jessica
02:02:11
I wish I could afford a coach but I would love to read your book I think it would help alot.
N Yanasak
02:02:16
Fear of failure, fear of others perceptions, fear of others reactions
Kris Clements
02:02:21
as a parent of high schooler... almost impossible to check work on schoolology.
Karen Jensen
02:02:41
The book is great and will be practical for tips!
linda
02:03:05
Can we get that part in the powerpoint as well?
Rachel Duncan
02:03:17
Thank you for sharing the PP presentation!
Hannah Brown FRCC (she/her)
02:03:27
Thank you so much for your presentation and information!
Rhonda Flath
02:03:32
Sometimes a coach can be an informal relationship with a trusted adult (not parent) in the child's life.
Estella
02:03:34
thank you!!!

Thank you Yanasak :). yes I think the problem is he makes it out to be bigger than it is.
