Anderson, Wade present at AMLE conference in Orlando
TFS Middle School Resource Center Director Tricia Anderson and Upper School International Counselor Rainen Wade presented at the annual AMLE (Association of Middle-Level Education) conference in Orlando last week.
Their presentation, Ways to support executive function skills, partnering with occupational therapy to support middle school students, was a conference highlight. It featured information about Tallulah Falls School’s belief that students with strong executive function skills hold the keys to school and social success—from attention and impulse control to time management, working memory, self-regulation, and organization.
Practical support is embedded within TFS classrooms, enhancing these critical skills for all students. Adding another layer of support for executive function is the partnership with a local occupational therapist, who offers 1:1 sessions that support improving executive function skills for interested families.
