Children and adolescents with executive function deficits often struggle with organization, prioritizing, time and task management, self-regulation and working memory. When you add a diagnosis of ADHD, specific learning disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and the common co-morbidities of these disorders, executive functions are specifically impaired and these children are often at risk for academic underachievement and socialization/behavioral difficulties.
Watch this recording with Dr. Kevin Blake, an expert on executive functioning, and learn proven evidence-based strategies to help these children and adolescents achieve their full academic and social potential. You will discover how to adapt treatment to the child’s developmental age as well as how to design strategies for the classroom and home that will include more reinforcement, stronger external consequences, and behavior modification. Technology to help with memory, note taking, time management and organization will be addressed. In addition, you will become confident in teaching social interaction and social skills in the classroom. Never again have a kid meltdown when changing from one activity to the next!
