Webinar: Executive Functions: What Are They and How Do We Evaluate Them? - 006121
“Executive functions” is a term used to describe a broad set of cognitive skills that, when working properly, allow students to manage impulses, work in a deliberate and thoughtful manner, and organize their time and materials. When development of these skills is delayed - as is often the case in those with learning disabilities, ADHD, or emotional disorders - academic performance suffers. When working with students who have special educational needs, it is imperative that professionals also consider whether or not the student is displaying age-appropriate executive skills; additional assessment and intervention may be necessary. This workshop will investigate several of the most common tools used to assess the executive functions including semi-structured interviews, standardized symptom inventories (e.g., Conners 3, BREIF) and formal psychometric tests (DKEFS).
