SKILLS FOR CHILDREN
Integrating research from over 300 scientific studies, Dr. Kenney has developed cognitive-motor movement and coaching strategies to engage attention, memory, self-control, cognitive flexibility, and self-regulation. Engaging her clients and their families as “cognitive scientists,” Dr. Lynne collaborates with children to help them build the executive function skills necessary to become the “best coaches” for their own brains.
