NEW DATE: Diagnostic Center North - Understanding and Supporting Students with Executive Function (EF) Deficits

Executive Function (EF) is an umbrella term for a collection of cognitive and behavioral functions such as problem solving, reasoning, planning and organization, inhibiting action or speech within context and managing attention control. It is commonly believed that executive functions are essential for purposeful, goal-directed behaviors and actions, and there is substantial evidence that academic achievement and appropriate executive function skills are correlated. This training will help teachers understand what executive functions are and how to best support students with executive functioning deficits. Participants will:

  • Understand the Executive Functioning domains.
  • Understand how Executive Function deficits are assessed and the link between ADHD and executive functioning.
  • Learn how Universal Design for Learning (UDL) strategies can support executive functioning deficits.
  • Learn strategies for academic and behavioral support for students with executive functioning deficits.
