Help Students Develop Executive Functioning Skills
Executive functioning skills are a valuable tool in a student’s arsenal. Unfortunately, some some students struggle to master these skills. Focus on just what executive function skills are and why they’re necessary. Work through two case studies as a way to fully comprehend material presented and practice implementing learned skills.
- Learn why students who master executive functioning skills are more academically successful than their counterparts.
- Discover practical strategies to assist students with implementing executive functioning skills into their daily routines.
- Practice the skills you’ve learned to effectively use these strategies with your own students.
