Time blindness, anxiety, and behavior management

When kids have a poor sense of time, the common response is to give them a planner or some kind of a timer.

While these tools may be a part of your strategy, they don't address time-blindness.

That's why in episode 136 of De Facto Leaders, I’m answering the question: 

"Why don't timers improve my students' time-management skills?

Time-blindness is a hallmark characteristic of executive functioning issues, and most timers don't facilitate these skills.

In this episode, I explain why that’s the case.

In this episode, I mention my free training called, “How to be Evidence-Based and Neurodiversity-Affirming (by Supporting Executive Functioning)”. You can sign up for the training here: https://drkarendudekbrannan.com/efleadership
