Executive function deficiencies in children and adolescents frequently cause difficulties with organization, prioritization, time and task management, self-regulation, and working memory. When you combine a diagnosis of ADHD, particular learning problem, autistic spectrum disorder, and their common co-morbidities, executive skills are severely affected, and these children are often at risk for academic underachievement and socialization/behavioral challenges.
Learn proven evidence-based techniques to help these children and adolescents achieve their full academic and social potential by watching this recording with Dr. Kevin Blake, an expert in executive functioning. You will learn how to tailor therapy to the child’s developmental stage, as well as how to create classroom and home tactics that include increased reinforcement, harsher external consequences, and behavior modification. Memory, note-taking, time management, and organizational technology will be discussed. You will also gain confidence in teaching social interaction and social skills in the classroom. Never again will your child have a tantrum when transitioning from one activity to the next!
