Supporting Executive Functioning **

Presented by Hanna Bogen, M.S., CCC-SLP

Strong executive functioning skills are at the intersection of self-regulation and strategic thinking. Deficits in either of these areas can impact a child’s ability to be successful, both academically and socially. This presentation will provide a foundation for understanding executive functioning as it relates to learning, therapy, and common disorders impacting students. Participants will learn strategies and tools to support executive functioning skills in younger and older students in the areas of impulse inhibition, planning, execution, and reflection/review.
