Executive Functioning
Workshop Title

Teaching Children to Think and Plan Ahead & EF Technology Tips

Date 2-8-23

All Educators

Workshop Description

Do your students struggle to think for themselves and problem solve? Self-regulation skills include goal directed behaviors, devising plans to achieve goals, using self-talk, knowing the rules, and controlling impulses and emotions to complete a task successfully. Practical strategies will be presented for teaching children forethought, awareness skills, to "know the goal", to initiate tasks, to inhibit impulses and complete tasks.

Many technology resources are available to support the academic skills, homework, time management and study skills, but which ones will work for your student? Many practical strategies will be provided to support the development of the executive function skills and student engagement.
