Talks and Workshops

Partnering with Chicagoland schools, businesses, and parent groups to offer educational presentations and workshops is a fun way for us to share what we've learned over the years. We'll teach you new ways to understand and connect with children, and you'll leave feeling energized and informed!


If you have a group of parents or professionals, we have a presentation for you! Whether it's for a lunch and learn at work or an evening gathering at school, we'll tailor the talk to your needs and work with your schedule.

Executive Functioning Workshops

Our hands-on executive functioning workshops are a great chance for parents and students to learn together! Participants leave each workshop with practical strategies that they can use right away.

Teacher Professional Development

As former teachers ourselves, it's a delight to collaborate with schools to share practical executive functioning principles and strategies with teachers. We want the implementation of the strategies to go as smoothly as possible, so we'll work closely with you to customize for your school.

  • We contracted with NW to provide parenting presentations and skills workshops to our local youth. The staff were very high energy and well organized in their presentations to the community. I would definitely recommend them for a school, library or PTA sponsored workshop.

  • Your workshop was so helpful and relevant to us. Our staff hasn’t stopped referencing things we learned and we’ve already had the opportunity to utilize some of the skills and strategies you showed us during our programs. You were engaging and knowledgeable about executive functioning which made it easy to learn!  Thank you so much.

  • The Executive Functioning workshop offered by Nurturing Wisdom was a wonderful experience. Both students and parents learned so much from the information and hands on experiences offered in the workshop.The feedback we received was amazing and we look forward to offer this great opportunity to our school community again this fall.

  • Nurturing Wisdom provided our teachers with useful, practical information and strategies to improve our students’ executive functioning skills. It was a pleasure to work with the staff at Nurturing Wisdom in planning this professional development opportunity.

  • Nurturing Wisdom has been a wonderful partner to our school.  They have offered top notch test prep services and feedback that are on par with other popular sources I have worked with; and their executive functioning workshops have proved to be very useful to many of our students that need a little bit of extra help in that area.  Whatever supplemental services we have collaborated on, they have proved to be worthwhile.  I love their pedagogy and the way that they seem to very student focused instead of business and revenue focused.

  • Clearly parents were thirsty for this topic. I appreciated having both theory and case studies presented as well as concrete suggestions for fostering the growth mindset in family life.
