Executive Functioning When ''''Alexa'''' Can do it All
Friday, November 15, 2019
The registration period has closed for this event.

Registration open through 11/15/2019 9:00 AM Central Time (US & Canada)

In a time when “Alexa” can set your alarm, remind you to brush your teeth, play a song and even help with homework, is executive functioning still important? YES!! This training will focus on the specific skills that make up executive functioning, how to teach these skills using low and high tech assistive technology, and how to write IEP goals that are focused on skills. We will also have fun along the way learning to teach students to become their own personal assistant.

Participants will be able to:
• Identify specific skills that make up executive functioning.
• Share different ways to teach executive functioning skills.
• Write IEP goals focused on skill deficits, not task completion goals.
• Use assistive technology tools (low tech to high tech) to support executive functioning skill development.
