This course will review what areas in the brain support Executive Function (EF), the array of self-regulation skills included under the EF umbrella, how we develop these skills along a human spectrum of more/less, and why these skills vary in importance under different contextual demands.
Participants will learn how to observe and interpret observed student difficulties such as sequencing, planning, organizing, and emotional control and how these are part of EF. We will discuss problematic student behaviors in various school settings, and discuss creative solution generation to provide strength-based supports for students with EF skill challenges, as well as how to embed principles that create learner environments that are valuable for building stronger executive function skills for all students.
