An Executive Functioning View of Poor Impulse Control, Motivation, and Self-Regulation
Often children and teens with sensory needs continue to struggle with impulse control, behavioral regulation, and self-control even after sensory plans have been put into place. This groundbreaking, 2-hour course looks at how sensory and Executive Function (EF) skills work together, how to address both, and offers ways of discerning which is the primary area of challenge.
- Define Executive Functions and list skills considered under the definition.
- Reproduce the Intervention Pyramid, which helps sequence interventions from the bottom up.
- Utilize quick screeners to help discern sensory from EF challenges.
- Articulate the difference between Behavior Management Plans and Behavior Instruction Plans.
- Discuss weak self-regulation from both a sensory and Executive Functions perspective.
- Access a minimum of 10 resources or strategies to immediately use with students to assist with impulse and inhibition challenges.
