Executive Functioning Skills in Children and Adolescents
About the Course
Executive functioning skills describe a person's ability to organize our behavior. Through the use of these skills, we can plan and organize activities, sustain attention, and persist to complete a task. Many students struggle with these skills and require additional support to help develop these skills. This course will look at interventions that can be used in the classroom to support students with the development of these executive functioning skills. This course appeals to teachers, administrators, and support staff at all levels (K-12).
