Monday, March 21, 2011
CANTON, Mo. – Sarah Craig, C-SC director of student success and first year experience, was recently featured in a quarterly newsletter published by the national Tourette Syndrome Association.
Craig was interviewed for an article featured in the spring 2011 issue of Inside TSA. The article, titled Executive Function and TS: in college, at home and in the workplace, explores executive function deficit in adults. Executive function refers to the set of cognitive abilities that control and regulate other abilities and behavior. They include the ability to initiate and stop actions, to monitor and change behavior as needed, and to plan future behavior when faced with novel tasks and situations. In the article, Craig discusses warning signs that could be an indication of executive function deficit, specifically in college students. Dr. Martha Denckla, director of developmental cognitive neurology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and professor of neurology, pediatrics and psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is also featured in the article.
Craig’s primary focus at C-SC is helping first-year students transition to college successfully. Her area of expertise is executive functioning; including time management, organization and helping students succeed academically at the college level.
