Using Context to Build and Enhance Executive Functioning

Students struggle with executive functioning for a variety of reasons: ADHD, anxiety, depression, short-term stress, fatigue, concussion, and more. These conditions can have compounding effects on children and teens as they try to learn. Those effects can have both short-term and long-term negative outcomes if not well-managed.

In this webinar, Margaret Foster will briefly define executive functioning and outline the major executive demands unique to each academic content. She will discuss how educators can engage students in executive skill development using labeling, application, and guided practice. She will offer tips for educators and specialists on how to become fluid at recognizing executive course demands, identifying student needs, and knowing how to initiate the process of effective interventions.
