Woodcock Johnson IV Workshop

NILD Executive Function Workshop 

NEW one day workshop developed by Kristin Barbour and Shannon Kuschel!

Description: Successful learning, and ultimately application of learning to academics, vocational and social demands, is highly dependent upon well-developed executive functioning skills. Several research studies suggest that well-developed EF skills are actually more predictive of academic success than psychometric measures of intelligence. The mastery of processes such as goal setting, planning, organizing, task initiating, sustaining attention, shifting flexibly, holding/manipulating information in working memory, inhibiting impulses and self-monitoring provides a valuable entry point for improving academic performance, motivation, effort, persistence and self-efficacy. Although parents and teachers expect children to use EF skills to negotiate many of the demands of childhood and adolescence, ironically EF skills are rarely explicitly taught, practiced or coached. Thankfully these cognitive skills can be spurred to development with instruction and repeated practice provided in the classroom, and generalized to life-long learning experiences. This workshop will not only increase you understanding of EF skills, but will also provide you with practical ways to promote and coach their development. BRAND NEW WORKSHOP!
