Professional Development

The Executive Function in the Classroom Series provides educators with a combination of theoretical approaches and practical strategies for supporting students with executive function challenges. Each workshop includes interactive practice and take-home templates that will empower you to guide your students in regulating their behaviour and emotions, reflecting on their thinking processes, and learning strategies that enable them to succeed at school and in life.
Level 2b. Executive Function 1-Day Workshop:
Planning and Prioritizing

Do you ever wonder why some of your students can’t seem to keep track of due dates, forget to record their homework, and never hand in work on time? This is a common dilemma amongst educators. Many students lack the ability to plan, prioritize, and manage their time effectively to meet their academic responsibilities. What often looks like apathy or laziness can actually be challenges in executive functions in the areas of planning, prioritizing, organizing, and time management.

This interactive workshop provides the theory and practical strategies needed to support students so they can complete their work on time, leading to greater self-esteem, self-efficacy and independence. Participants in this workshop will receive specific strategies, tools, and templates, along with opportunities to practice these new techniques.

All of our workshops also offer access to three follow-up sessions to support classroom implementation over the course of a year.
