Executive skills are task-oriented skills that underlie students’ ability to learn. Although seldom taught explicitly, it has become clear, particularly as parents and schools were forced to adapt to the pandemic, that students who are strong in these skills are more successful than those who aren’t. This workshop will give participants an overview of the “Smart but Scattered” model for understanding, assessing, and treating executive skill challenges.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Be able to identify how executive skills impact school performance and daily living.
- Know a variety of formal and informal assessment strategies for evaluating executive skills.
- Learn how to make environmental modifications to support weak executive skills.
- Learn how to design protocols for teaching executive skills.
- Learn a process for designing a “student-centered” intervention targeting problem situations associated with executive skill challenges.
