American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Improving Executive Functioning in Your Child,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences” speaker series. Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the October event is Michael Delman, M.Ed., award-winning educator, entrepreneur, and author.
During this virtual event, Delman will provide practical tips for parents and caregivers to help their children develop essential executive function skills that will help them thrive both in and out of the school environment.
Delman founded Beyond BookSmart in 2006, which he has grown into the world’s largest Executive Function coaching company, as its CEO. Prior to that, he co-founded and was the principal of McAuliffe Charter School in Framingham, Massachusetts. In 2018, he published his first book, “Your Kid’s Gonna Be Okay: Building the Executive Function Skills Your Child Needs in the Age of Attention,” and toured the country speaking with parents about how to help their children be productive and confident. A popular speaker at conferences, Delman has also been featured in The Times of London, CBS Boston affiliate WBZ TV, and dozens of media outlets across the country. Most recently, he has launched BrainTracks, a division of Beyond BookSmart that focuses on bringing Executive Function instruction to schools. As a lifelong educator, Delman’s passion is helping people discover their strengths, develop their confidence, and become more effective at whatever challenges they face.
The speaker series is streamed live virtually and all Previous Episodes are available for viewing at any time. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic. The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a place to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.
