Executive Function (EF) involves the skills that let us set goals, plan, and execute tasks. Children who have difficulty with executive function are impacted in school, at home and in life activities.
Participants will learn about the main areas of executive function, how it develops in children and adolescents, and how to identify signs of executive functioning difficulties. The causes and how to treat resulting issues in the classroom and related service settings will be discussed. Participants will explore the behavioral categories that comprise healthy executive functioning and learn how to help students develop skills necessary for academic and career success. Self-regulation skills and the impact of executive function in social situations and relationships will also be explained.
