Executive Functions: How do they develop and what do we do about it?


We will take a deeper look at defining multiple different executive functions such as planning, organizing, inhibition, attention and working memory. Different thoughts and ideas surrounding the various executive functions will be extrapolated and we will also consider the developmental aspects of achieving them. Maude will include thoughts by experts such as Dr. Russell Barkley, Pam Dawson and Richard Guare. This talk will support an interdisciplinary approach as we all seek to understand each individual profile we encounter.
