Time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm central/8:00 – 9:00 pm eastern
Audience: Parents & Teachers


Parents and teachers are all struggling with ways to support learning and maintain productivity while learning from home. This live and interactive session will focus on understanding the executive/regulatory system, and more importantly, ways to enhance executive functioning to ensure kids learn at their potential while learning from home.

Dr. Steven C. Guy is a pediatric neuropsychologist in private practice in Columbus, Ohio. He works with children and adolescents with a wide variety of developmental and acquired conditions. He has held positions of clinical instructor at both The Ohio State University and the University of Maryland Medical Center.  His current research includes developing methods designed to assist in the assessment and treatment of executive function.   

Dr. William Benninger is a former adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Clinical Psychology at The Ohio State University.  In his private practice he specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD and related disorders. He has diagnosed and treated thousands of children, adolescents, and adults with this disorder. Benninger was the first psychologist in the US certified to use Cogmed Working Memory Training, a widely used, evidence-based intervention which improves working memory and other executive function deficits.  His most recent research is on the benefits of Cogmed Working Memory Training in children and adolescents.
