Co-sponsored with Support for Families of Children with Disabilities
This talk will provide a definition of executive functioning as well as descriptions of the many potential implications of deficits in this area. Basic principles of executive functioning intervention will be covered. To exemplify these principles, we will discuss specific behavioral strategies to help build executive functioning skills and compensate for deficits, as well as technology to support these strategies.
