Guest: Kayla Plutschack, OTD, OTR/L

Does your child have trouble remembering directions, staying on task, keeping track of their things, or completing projects/routines independently? It could be a difficulty with executive functioning skills.

In this episode, Nicole is joined by Kayla Plutschack, the lead occupational therapist at DotCom Therapy for a discussion around executive functioning skills. They discuss the 7 components of executive functioning and how these skills affect a child not only at school, but in every day life. She gives insight into how to recognize these difficulties in your child and increase their independence.
