Do you work with disorganized, inflexible, impulsive students who struggle with planning and problem solving? Executive function (EF) skills are a collection of mental processes that assist individuals in organizing, planning, problem solving, and self-regulating. EF challenges are unique to each individual, are unrelated to motivation and intellectual abilities, and can significantly affect everyday functioning at school, work, community, and home. In this webinar, you’ll learn powerful evidence-based strategies you can implement immediately to support students with EF deficits to thrive in all school environments, including the general education classroom. These strategies can improve student behavior and increase engagement, reducing anxiety and stress in both students and the adults who work with them.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify and articulate five components of competent executive function.
- Explain how EF deficits impact learning and behavior.
- Describe at least five evidence-based practices that support the learning and behavior of learners with EF deficits in all school settings.
