Many of you are supporting students who may have difficulties with organization, planning, initiation, staying on task, impulse control, emotional regulation, adaptability and resiliency. These are all areas of something called executive functioning. If a student struggles with these, clearly they will be struggling in your classrooms. This presentation will help teachers identify specific areas of executive functioning in their students and how they are impacting the students’ education. Attendees will develop the ability to use a variety of strategies to effectively support and teach students who struggle with executive functioning skills in order to improve student participation and performance.
