Limited Capacity full

Students with varying educational and medical diagnoses often have difficulty in executive functioning skills. These skills (planning, organizing, executing, initiating, emotional regulation, attention/memory, etc) are foundational skills to access academics and cognition. Any deficits or weaknesses in EF ultimately impact classroom performance and skill acquisition. This session will serve as an interactive workshop with a brief education on EF support with compensatory external strategies to improve student independent and classroom experience. Participants will leave the session with the physical tools needed for immediate implementation upon returning to their classrooms. Participants will also gain a better understanding of how to include executive functioning in IEP goals, including progress monitoring methods.
