Executive Functioning in the Classroom


December 15, 2020, Online


As most schools are moving toward some form of e-learning or blended learning this coming semester, it is more important than ever that educators understand the role that executive functioning plays in students’ success or struggles in school. Deficits in organization, attention, and memory can cause significant difficulties for students when in a consistent environment with supports. This session will look specifically at in-classroom and in-school supports so that students can learn executive functioning skills and work on techniques within the school setting. Participants will be encouraged to consider how these techniques can be modified for a blended or e-learning environment as needed.
