Supporting executive functioning in students with learning difficulties
Presenter Hayley Smith (Educational Consultant, Paediatric OT) and Katrina Sheraton-Yu (Psychologist, Teacher, Educational Consultant)
Executive functioning is a term used to describe the collection of cognitive skills needed to "execute" a goal or get a task done. While this sounds simple, executive functioning skills can be very challenging to teach in a practical way and observe increased efficiency. It is particularly important to have awareness and understanding when supporting students with learning difficulties as executive functioning skills often need to be taught explicitly. Having good executive functioning skills are essential for all students as they help them to stay focused, get organised, plan, attend to and remember instructions, and use their working memory. Katrina and Hayley have worked with these students and their families for over 15 years within a school and private clinic setting. This presentation will help you: • identify red flags that may indicate executive function challenges • provide practical strategies for intervention related to achieving executive functioning goals • support executive functioning for primary and high school students at home and throughout the school day to ensure students can achieve success and thrive **VIDEO LINK available until end of Feb 2023**
