Embedding Executive Function Supports


Product Description

Embedding Executive Function Supports into Everyday Activities

Executive skills—those skills that allow us to plan, organize, use time, make decisions, remember things, and understand consequences—are critical to determining an individual’s level of independent living. Most individuals with developmental, cognitive, social, and/or language deficits have a weakened executive system and will rely on having structures and supports in place to help them move safely and independently through the day. Whether you’re engaging with a preschooler getting ready for nap time or a teenager applying for a job, this highly engaging workshop provides the research behind executive skills, strategies to support them, and offers multiple ideas for embedding skills into daily routines.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Define executive functions and describe how they impact daily routines and activities.
  2. Identify individuals at risk for weak executive functioning.
  3. Cite current research about most effective strategies for promoting independence.
  4. Create a map of a client/student’s day and identify key areas for intervention and support.
  5. Plan and utilize supports to move toward increased independence and safety.
