Director of Speech-Language Pathology


Today’s world of hectic schedules, information overload, and high expectations demands that students be masters at time management, organization, planning, and flexibility. Weak executive function skills are often the root cause behind many academic struggles. Studies have shown just how crucial these executive function skills are to future academic, career, and life success. This workshop will present executive function skills as a way of reframing how we approach our work with students. We will explore classroom and therapy practices that promote the development of these essential skills and interventions to support students with executive function skill deficits. Workshop attendees will have opportunities to apply and
adapt ideas to the students they work with and set attainable goals for implementation.


Emily Hawe, M.A., is a former secondary English Language Arts teacher who now specializes in executive function skills. She combines her wide range of experience as a classroom teacher, college advisor, executive function coach, teacher developer, and parent coach to empower students to excel in the classroom and beyond. In addition to working individually with students and families, she frequently presents parent and teacher workshops on topics related to executive function skills at schools throughout Long Island and New York City. Prior to transitioning to consulting, she was a tenured 7th grade English teacher at Oyster Bay High School. She holds two Master’s degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University in English Education and Higher Education Administration.
