In order to be successful in school and beyond, students need more than natural aptitudes, curiosity, and subject area knowledge—they must be taught how to learn. In this session, Dr. Richard Cash will explain the foundations of self-regulation for learning and how it is developed. Parents will be offered useful and practical strategies to help their children be better prepared for the complexities of life beyond the K-12 setting.
