STRUCTURING YOUR CLASS TO BUILD EXECUTIVE FUNCTION WORKSHOP
September 18th (1-5 pm) and 19th (9-3 pm)
Students with Executive Function skill deficits can be challenging to teach. Students appear as disorganized, unable to prioritize, and tend to procrastinate. These students are the ones that teachers say are very bright, so why don’t they remember to do their homework? Executive Function skills are crucial in the development of social, emotional, and academic performance of children, teens, and adults. Strategies that work for these students are also best practice for all students to be successful. This workshop focuses on how to identify executive control issues and assist children to develop effective time, space, and emotional control. The workshop will cover the following topics:
- Define Executive Functioning skills
- Overview of History of EF
- Looking at Ef from a Neuro-Developmental Perspective
- The developmental sequence of EF skills
- Evaluation/Assessment Tools
- Strategies and teaching tools for building EF skills
- Integrating tools for EF into a variety of environments (School, Home, Work)
The workshop is a two-day workshop with a focus on practical ideas for teaching Executive Function skills. Participants will practice and take-away many ideas for teaching Executive Function skills to students. $350 per person, Group discounts available. Contact Karen Lindeen at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
