In this experiential program, you will learn evidence-based cognitive, physical and environmental strategies to use in the assessment and intervention of executive function (EF) deficits in children and adolescents.
You will learn effective assessment processes, activity analysis, interventions and coaching activities that empower positive behavior change in the kids you work with. These innovative interventions will help your clients successfully negotiate the daily tasks of life such as organization, time management, initiation and completion of tasks – without heavy reliance on others.
You will learn interventions that increase self-awareness, self-monitoring and problem-solving skills and teach them how to be proactive and a socially and academically successful student. The often-forgotten influence of sleep will also be prioritized as a means to success, along with routine-building strategies, such as goal attainment scaling.
In this recording, you’ll learn how to:
- Use a model of inhibition, working memory and cognitive shifting as a framework for working with EF
- Maximize memory formation through sensory processing and sleep strategies
- Assess functional EF needs effectively to establish concrete interventions
- Establish skill-building interventions to promote organization, time management and task completion
- Design effective accommodations to enhance generalization of skills to navigate daily tasks
Focusing on a top-down, client-centered approach and incorporating both remediative and adaptive interventions ensures that you can hit the ground running with your clients immediately. Your competence will translate to their confidence!
- Utilize the developmental patterns for the three foundational components of executive function (EF) to create lens for assessment and intervention.
- Develop mindfulness, physical activity, positive reinforcement and environmental interventions and assign as homework, classwork and activities of daily living (ADLs) for children and adolescents.
- Examine the neurological connections between attention, arousal, and memory that affect executive function performance in ADLs, academics and social participation.
- Establish the relationship between postural control, attention, vision and executive functions as it relates to assessment and treatment planning.
- Correlate the influence of sleep on executive function performance and the consequences of arousal challenges with sleep onset difficulties.
- Utilize goal attainment scaling as an intervention to improve client’s self-management skills, habit formation and routinization.
Inhibition, Working Memory and Cognitive Shifting: The Working Model of Executive Function
- Developmental patterns to distinguish assessment and intervention processes
- Dysfunction patterns in ADHD, ASD, Sensory Processing Disorder, learning disabilities, brain injury
- Consequences of impulsivity, working memory difficulties and cognitive rigidity
Neuro Connections: From Sensory Processing to Memory Formation and Sleep
- Sensory processing as basis for learning
- Arousal states and “window of opportunity for learning”
- Self-regulation: sensory, cognition, emotional regulation, impulse control
- Postural control and relationship to attention
- Vision and learning: consequences for attention, EF
- Sleep and influence on learning, self-regulation, memory consolidation and attention
Assessment: From Observations to Standardized Tools
- Observational strategies to identify EF deficits
- Assessment tools for inhibition, working memory and shifting
- Semi-structured interviews and self-assessment tools
- Assessment tools for global EF measurements and sleep
- Identification of sensory arousal patterns
