About Executive Functioning
A common feature of weak executive function skills are reduced organization skills. As students move from elementary to middle to high school, the ability to think in an organized way or to use these “higher order thinking skills” becomes more and more important. You will learn many practical strategies to teach children how to identify the big picture, to integrate information, to make inferences, to improve their speed of processing and to problem solve. In addition you will learn concrete strategies to help children manage their time and materials to successfully record and complete nightly homework assignments, long term projects and to prepare for tests.
