Participants will learn how to observe and interpret observed student difficulties such as sequencing, planning, organizing, and emotional control and how these are part of EF. We will discuss problematic student behaviors in various school settings, and discuss creative solution generation to provide strength-based supports for students with EF skill challenges, as well as how to embed principles that create learner environments that are valuable for building stronger executive function skills for all students.
