Academic Performance

Important Session Information:

“Executive functions” is a term used to describe a broad set of cognitive skills that, when working properly, allow students to manage impulses, work in a deliberate and thoughtful manner, and organize their time and materials. When development of these skills is delayed, as is often the case in those with learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or emotional disorders, academic performance suffers. When working with students who have special educational needs, it is imperative that professionals also consider whether or not the student is displaying age-appropriate executive skills; additional assessment and intervention may be necessary. This workshop will begin by defining the term “executive functioning” using clear, easy to understand terms, but the majority of the time will be spent describing many concrete, immediately usable strategies that can be implemented to support a student with weak executive functioning.

THIS WEBINAR IS NOT HELD ON SITE AT EDUCATION SERVICE CENTER, REGION 20. This training series will be presented via online webinar.  You will need a computer with headphones or speakers to participate.
