NunnTalks Podcast: NEW EPISODE

"Never underestimate the impact you can have on a child's life simply by slowing down and meeting them where they're at," Tanya Keto.

Executive Functions (EF) are mental processes that help to connect our previous experiences with present actions to guide our behaviours. 

In today's podcast, Tanya explains that we all have strengths and weaknesses in our executive functions; however, individuals with ADHD and Learning Disabilities may experience increased difficulty in developing and using these functions compared to their peers.



Tanya Keto is a Registered Psychologist with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta and a Masters of Education (Child and Applied School Psychology) from the University of Calgary. She is the Manager of Professional Development and Parent Education for Foothills Academy Society, a leader in Learning Disabilities (LD) since 1979.

Tanya has over 20 years of experience working with individuals with LD and ADHD as a teacher, learning strategist, guidance counsellor, and educational psychologist. She now specializes as an adult educator, university instructor, and advocate for individuals with LD and ADHD at school and in the workplace. 

She's happy to answer any questions our listeners might have:
