LCC to present best selling authors!

Does your child have trouble getting organized, staying on task, or remembering important details? Is his or her school performance suffering because of attention issues? Does it lead to family conflict?

Join Peg Dawson, EdD, and Richard Guare, PhD, authors of the best-selling “Smart but Scattered” to learn about executive functioning, discover easy-to-follow steps to identify each child’s strengths and weaknesses, use activities and techniques proven to boost specific skills, and problem-solve daily routines.

Monday, October 10th, 2011 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm
at the Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh International Airport

To reserve your spot, contact Laughlin Children’s Center at 412.741.4087 or register online at www.laughlincenter.org. The workshop is open to parents and educators alike!

Prices start at $130 for the conference, handouts, parking, breakfast, lunch, and breaks. Continuing education credits available for teachers, psychologists, counselors and other mental health professionals. Email d.florey@laughlincenter.org for more details.

Want to find out more or discuss your viewpoint on executive functioning? Join LCC’s clinicians for a free, informal “Smart but Scattered” book discussion on Wednesday, September 21st at the Penguin Bookshop. The talk begins at 7 pm, and you’re invited whether or not you’ve read the book. A daytime discussion will also be offered, at 10 am on Monday, September 26th. Refreshments will be provided--a great opportunity to prepare for the full-day workshop on October 10th!
