Description: “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, ADHD, or emotional disorders, academic performance suffers, but for reasons not fully understood. For example, a student with dyslexia, although receiving intensive reading intervention, continues to receive low grades in school because she does not consistently turn in her homework. 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 define the term “executive functioning” using clear, easy to understand language. It will also draw the connection between executive functioning and academics, highlighting the ways in which executive dysfunction can negatively impact learning and performance. Finally, many concrete strategies for home and school use will be shared.
