Interventions to Support Executive Skill Development

Trainings designed to provide strategies for managing challenging behaviors in both general education and special education classrooms.

Important Session Information:

Presenter: Peg Dawson

Executive skills are task-oriented skills that underlie students’ ability to learn. Although seldom taught explicitly, many educators now see that students who are strong in these skills are more successful than those who aren't. This workshop will provide an introduction to the “Smart but Scattered” model of executive skills. It will begin with an overview of the 11 skills that comprise this model, with a review of evidence-based intervention strategies tailored to each skill. Three broad strategies that support students with executive skill challenges will be described, followed by a description of a “student-centered” approach to designing interventions tailored to the needs of students with more significant executive skill challenges.

Learning Goals: As a result of attending this workshop, participants will:

  1. Be able to define 11 executive skills and identify strategies designed to address student deficit each skill.
  2. Learn how to make environmental modifications to support weak executive skills.
  3. Learn how to design protocols for teaching executive skills.
  4. Learn how to design a personalized intervention to address problem behaviors tailored to an individual student and the unique context in which the problem behavior occurs.
  5. Learn strategies for engaging students in the problem-solving process so that the intervention is collaborative and student-centered.
