Hidden Sparks Presents: Executive Functions and Literacy
Online Session, New York, New York 10018
This is a two-part online workshop facilitated by Hollis Danaham. Please note that this workshop will be held remotely.
Workshop 1: In this workshop, the following questions will be answered. What are executive functions? How do they affect school performance? What are classroom strategies to support a student who struggles with executive functions?
Workshop 2: Sometimes students struggle with reading and writing due to weak executive functions (EF). The strategies and interventions that are successful with other root causes of students’ literacy difficulties often do not work when EF is the culprit. Learn about the executive functions required for reading and writing, how to identify a student is struggling with these functions, and what to do about it. You will walk away with a strategy toolkit to use with your students. Strategies relevant to the online learning environment will be discussed.
