Helping Students Show What They Know: Enhancing Executive Functioning (OS307)

  • PMD: 1,3
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. define a model of executive functions in the everyday school environment
  2. describe strengths and weaknesses of approaches to assessing executive functions
  3. articulate a model for developing individualized interventions for executive function difficulties in students


Executive functioning difficulties are evident in most conditions cared for by school psychologists. It is critical to have a firm foundation in the topic. This discussion will include recent progress in our understanding of EF including concepts and theory, assessment approaches, and most importantly, evidence-based methods of interventions for improving EF. This workshop will answer the following questions about EF: What is it? How do I assess for it? What can I do about it?
