Description
This intermediate workshop provides an overview of executive functioning with an emphasis on the emerging literature that creates a link between theory and applied practice. The presenter discusses his research from a nationally representative standardization sample of 3,500 children and adolescents collected for the Comprehensive Executive Functioning Inventory developed by Naglieri and Goldstein (2013). The discussion will tie an empirical definition of executive functioning to clinical assessment and interventions.
Learning Objectives
1. Comprehend historical, theoretical history of executive function as a major force in the evolution of the human species.
2. Apply current theories of executive function and their relationship to the clinical assessment of children with learning, emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders.
3. Integrate information from a diagnostic questionnaire and face instruments to evaluate executive function in the context of a clinical evaluation.
4. Apply strategies to modify and improve executive functioning and thereby reduce daily functional impairment while increasing learning and positive behaviors.
