This presentation will provide a brief overview and introduction to Executive Function in school-age people. Executive Functioning's relationship to learning, behavior, and emotion will be highlighted, as well as what the current research has revealed about its importance in these domains. A brief review of Executive Functioning assessment tools will be provided to assist the practitioner in identifying when the child is experiencing Executive Functioning difficulties. Case studies and interventions will be presented together to illustrate how to intervene, and to provide potential resources that can be used for Executive Functioning skill-building.
