Description

In this experiential program, you will learn evidence-based cognitive, physical and environmental strategies to use in the assessment and intervention of executive function (EF) deficits in children and adolescents.

You will learn effective assessment processes, activity analysis, interventions and coaching activities that empower positive behavior change in the kids you work with. These innovative interventions will help your clients successfully negotiate the daily tasks of life such as organization, time management, initiation and completion of tasks – without heavy reliance on others.

You will learn interventions that increase self-awareness, self-monitoring and problem-solving skills and teach them how to be proactive and a socially and academically successful student. The often-forgotten influence of sleep will also be prioritized as a means to success, along with routine-building strategies, such as goal attainment scaling.

In this recording, you'll learn how to:

  • Use a model of inhibition, working memory and cognitive shifting as a framework for working with EF
  • Maximize memory formation through sensory processing and sleep strategies
  • Assess functional EF needs effectively to establish concrete interventions
  • Establish skill-building interventions to promote organization, time management and task completion
  • Design effective accommodations to enhance generalization of skills to navigate daily tasks

Focusing on a top-down, client-centered approach and incorporating both remediative and adaptive interventions ensures that you can hit the ground running with your clients immediately. Your competence will translate to their confidence!
