Executive Functioning: The What and the How

Presented by Scotti Hagensick, School Improvement Facilitator for SEBH - Keystone AEA

The term "executive functioning" is often used as an umbrella term or meta-construct to define the various motor, sensory, communication and cognitive skills all individuals use for numerous daily activities and situations. This interactive webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to dig into the various definitions of executive functioning and equip educators with strategies to implement best practices designed to build students' capacity in this area. The outcomes of this session include:

  • Develop an understanding of executive functioning and applying this definition in conversations with students, staff and stakeholders
  • Link executive functioning to ASCA Student Standards: Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success as well as to individual educators' building and district mission and vision statements
  • Articulate the sequence of executive functioning skills and illustrate how these skills lead to specific behaviors 
  • Utilize problem solving templates and tools to match students to executive functioning interventions and supports

This will be an interactive session and attendees will be encouraged to turn their cameras on and engage.
