There is an increasing call for executive function instruction in schools, but these skills aren’t always easy to teach. Problem solving, organization, emotional regulation, and other such abilities are simple to demonstrate but not so simple to explain in an age-appropriate way.
Our new book, created by the team at UCLA KidsConnect and the SEEDS for Family School Readiness, gives teachers an executive functioning curriculum that works, utilizing engaging classroom activities that will help your students understand these key concepts. This curriculum is appropriate for any classroom, but is especially helpful for autistic students and other neurodiverse groups who are especially vulnerable to executive dysfunction.This 10-week program provides an ideal complement to spring, fall, and summer sessions, bolstering executive functioning capabilities and reducing learning loss. The 10 interlinked "cogs" essential for executive functioning are addressed:
- Problem Solving
- Emotion Regulation
- Working Memory
- Cognitive Flexibility
- Task Initiation
- Time Awareness
