ABOUT THE SPEAKER
EXECUTIVE FUNCTION DYSFUNCTION
Executive functions are the cognitive tasks that allow us to plan, organize, initiate, attend to task, and regulate and monitor behavior. They are the key building blocks to learning and can be compared to the orchestra leader of the band. When the orchestra leader is on the podium, the band can make beautiful music! But when the orchestra leader steps off the podium, lots of mishaps can occur. We do know that kids with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and certain types of learning disabilities (including nonverbal learning disability) can all be impacted by executive function deficits. If your child or student has any of the following concerns, he may be struggling with executive function deficits:
- Can’t seem to hold directions in his/her brain or be able to multi-task
- Is unmotivated
- Is often fidgety or inattentive
- Has difficulty shifting between activities or “letting things go”
Come and learn practical strategies for school and home that will empower your student or child to succeed, while capitalizing on his/her strengths.
By attending, participants can:
- List and describe several executive function deficits.
- Understand symptoms or behaviors that students may demonstrate if they are experiencing executive function disorder.
- Implement several strategies to assist with attention, improve organizational skills, increase motivation, and improving shifting ability.
