About the Session:
Executive function (EF) strategies (e.g., shifting flexibly, goal setting, organization, accessing working memory, and self-monitoring) are crucial for success in school. However, without support many students, especially those with learning differences, such as dysgraphia, will struggle; as they fall behind, they may lose self-confidence in their abilities.
In this webinar, we will develop a personalized, functional and research-based definition of EF, learning how EF relates to metacognition, self-concept, and effort, and exploring why students so often struggle with EF related tasks. We will also explore what research says are the best practices for EF strategy instruction, as well as how this model can be adapted by parents, teachers, tutors, and more.
