Topic: Executive Function, Language, Reading
Have you ever had a student who demonstrated strong verbal and thinking skills but when put to the task of independently reading and/or writing they can’t seem to succeed at the task? This could be the result of weak executive functions, a set of processes that involve mental control and self-regulation. In this webinar participants will not only gain a deeper understanding of the executive functions and how they impact reading and writing, but they will also walk away with interventions and strategies to help.
