In this two-session series*, we will explore the latest understanding of executive functioning, proactive and individualized instruction (tiered approaches), and links with social and emotional learning. Participants will explore a) the neurobiological and developmental factors of executive functions, b) how executive functions link with social and emotional learning, and c) considerations for classroom instruction and individualized intervention. A summary grid of evidence-based strategies cross walked with different executive functions will be provided along with guidance for selecting and matching approaches to student need. Neurodiversity affirming and inclusive practices will be emphasized in these sessions.
Participant learning objectives:
- Understand the basic neuroscience and development of executive functions
- Identify several links between executive functions and social and emotional learning
- Identify key considerations for classroom instruction
- Identify key considerations for selecting, matching, and delivering executive function interventions
- Articulate the importance of neurodiversity affirming and inclusive practices for learners with differences in executive functioning
