The course will shed insight into the ways that we can facilitate the development of building block skills necessary for success with executive functioning abilities.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

• Nine key domains and the foundational skills necessary for building abilities.
• Standardized and informal assessment of the skills to executive functioning.
• Treatment strategies for each building block skill.

Areas to be covered include: Inhibition, regulation, problem solving, self-monitoring, cognitive flexibility, ideation, working memory, organization, language processing, visual processing, and more.

This workshop is packed with concrete ways to identify and categorize our student’s specific issues, along with hands-on treatment strategies.
