This workshop will dealing with children with weak executive functioning using clear, easy to understand terms.

Professionals in the fields of education and mental health will benefit from attending. CEUs are available through the Ohio Psychological Association. One graduate credit is available through John Carroll University, for an additional fee.

From Dr. Chase’s website:

“Executive functions” is a term used to describe a broad set of cognitive skills that, when working properly, allow students to manage impulses, work in a deliberate and thoughtful manner, and organize their time and materials. When development of these skills is delayed, as is often the case in those with learning disorders, ADHD, behavioral disturbances, or emotional disorders, academic performance suffers, but for reasons not fully understood.

This workshop will define the term “executive functioning” using clear, easy to understand terms. It will also draw the connection between executive functioning and academics, highlighting the ways in which executive dysfunction can negatively impact learning and performance.
