Drs. Raviv and Edidin will provide a brief overview of the developmental course of executive functioning. They will then review some of the hands-on measures and questionnaires that are used to assess executive functioning, as well as how difficulties in this area can affect academic functioning. A discussion of how to understand a neuropsychological report and how it can be used to guide interventions, which will include case studies, will follow. Finally, Ms. Schabinger will share her experience working with students with executive functioning deficits, as well as present a specific program she uses in her practice to address executive functioning.
