Piedmonters for Resources, Advocacy & Information in Special Education.

PRAISE is a group of Piedmont parents who work collaboratively with the Piedmont Unified School District & other parent organizations, to support and raise awareness for families whose children have special education needs.

“It is important to remind people that “special” needs (like education) are not really “special”- they are the same needs and rights that every person should enjoy- the delivery specifics are what’s different.”
Shannon de Roches Rosa

  • Tuesday, 26 September 2017 EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING: Planning, Decision-Making, and Metacognition for Kids

    “Executive functioning” refers to the set of neurocognitive skills that allow us to manage ourselves and our resources: our time, our self-control, our working memory, our planning and organization.  Strong executive functioning is critical to our kids’ success—in school and in their personal lives—and has an especially significant impact on those with learning differences.
