You will learn how to clearly define the components of the executive function skills for the purposes of creating the most effective treatment interventions.  The development of the executive function skills will be described in order to understand what is meant by the term "executive dysfunction".  Learn many ready-to-use practical strategies for teaching students how to develop the executive function skills: teach students to develop a "memory for the future" and to use self initiated organizational strategies to achieve their goals; improve a student's awareness skills necessary to  "read a room"; and reasoning skills to "stop, think and create" an appropriate action plan and and anticipate possible outcomes.  Teach students to see and sense the passage of time, accurately estimate how long tasks will take, change or maintain their pace, and carry out routines and tasks within allotted time frames.  Help students adopt a mindful approach to homework and to develop personalized study habits.
