Brain Basics: Diagnosing and Supporting Executive Function Skills

Executive function is what neuropsychologists call the mental processes your brain uses to manage tasks such as problem solving, reflecting, organizing, planning, and deciding what action to take. This part of your brain decides what to pay attention to and for how long, as well as what is worth remembering.

It is easy to see how executive function skills set the stage for everyday success, and working with students struggling with executive functioning deficits is often frustrating and exhausting. In this workshop led by Margaret Searle and Marilyn Swartz, you will learn specific and practical ideas for improving your students' success level.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will

  • Define what executive function is and how it affects both academic and behavior success.

  • Learn how to diagnose the exact strengths and skills needed to support executive functions.

  • Implement research-based strategies that can dramatically improve the way you teach.
