Executive Functioning consists of important every-day skills that often get taken for granted. How we plan our day, organize tasks, and the length of time we can stay focused on what we need to do are all considered executive functioning tasks.

This session will discuss what executive functioning is, how executive functioning skills relate to education and what educators can do to help support students. Attention, memory and organization will be discussed under the umbrella of executive functioning and participants will leave with a better understanding of how to support their students in a variety of educational environments.

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the areas of executive functioning.
  • List at least three difficulties that students who struggle with executive functioning could have in a learning environment.
  • Identify at least 5 changes they can make to their teaching to help support students with executive functioning deficits.
