Learn it Today, Use it Tomorrow! Practical, Cutting Edge Interventions for Improving Executive Function Skills in Students

This is a practical strategies seminar: 5% theory and 95% strategies to add to your treatment
tool box. First you will learn how to clearly dene what the executive function skills are for
the purpose of determining the most eective treatment interventions. You will learn dozens
of functional, ready-to-use strategies for teaching students how to develop the executive
function skills. Teach students to develop a “memory for the future”, to devise plans to achieve
their goal, to use self talk, to self-initiate, to transition to the next task of higher priority and to
control their impulses and emotions to successfully complete a task. Improve a student’s
awareness skills so that he/she can “read a room” then “stop, think and create” an
appropriate action plan and infer 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. Learn methods to improve a
student’s ability to cognitively shift and to be exible in processing and accessing information.
Learn how to use the Get Ready*Do*Done Model to turn the core curriculum and
lesson/treatment plans into powerful tools to teach students executive control skills. Fresh
approaches to help students develop automaticity for class routines and transitions.
