With Barbara Haas-Givler
By Jayne Dixon-Weber
Barbara Haas-Givler, from the Geisinger Fragile X clinic in Pennsylvania, gave a talk at the 18th NFXF International Fragile X Conference about executive functioning — what it is, how to identify it, and strategies for improving it. While the title says it is for girls, there are ideas in this video that everyone can use — boys and girls, young and old, even moms, dads, and other caregivers. Throughout her talk, Ms. Haas-Givler intersperses examples of how she handles executive functioning in her own life (also see her presentation slides).
We’d like to share her presentation with you, as well as my key takeaways (below the video) that might help you before you dive in.
