Conference Description:
Children who have deficient executive skills often have trouble getting started on tasks, get distracted easily, lose papers or assignments and forget to hand in homework. They make careless mistakes, put off work until the last minute and have no sense of time urgency. Workspaces are disorganized and teachers often refer to their backpacks or lockers as “black holes.” Often considered chronic underachievers, these children are at risk for academic failure as well as emotional and behavioral difficulties.

Leave this seminar with a set of tools that includes strategies for task/environmental modifications, skill development through cognitive/behavioral techniques and creation of incentive systems. You will be able to give teachers and parents a means for developing and improving the following:
• organization
• time management
• impulse control
• goal-directed persistence
• executive skills critical for independent functioning

Conference Objectives:
• Assess the relationship between the executive skills and brain development/function in relation to assessment and treatment planning.
• Recommend strategies to accommodate and strengthen weak planning and organizational skill, to improve client level of functioning.
• Explore assessment tools used to identify deficits in executive functioning to better inform your choice of treatment interventions.
• Determine how executive skills impact performance and activities of daily living at home and school for the purpose of client psychoeducation.
• Utilize environmental modification strategies to support deficits in executive skills thus improving treatment outcomes.
• Implement strategies that transition children from being externally prompted to internally regulated.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
