Executive Functions: Assessment and Implications to Support the Student
Executive Functions are becoming an integral part of psycho-educational assessments. Executive Functions (EFs) essentially direct one’s behavior in a purposeful, goal directed or problem solving manner, and are directly related to academic production and everyday life. Weaknesses in EFs are common for many students being evaluated for special education and 504 Plans. Students meeting eligibility criteria for autism, SLD, SLI, and OHI / 504 related to ADHD often have associated difficulties with EFs. This training will focus primarily on the construct of EFs in addition to strategies and assessment tools using a multi-dimensional approach. By the end of the training, participants will have recommendations to assist their school teams on goals, interventions, and decision making related to EFs.
