This post-conference workshop will expand on the Friday morning plenaries on executive functions and the DIR-FCD™ model in the classroom. It will provide a deeper understanding of the role of executive functions in development and learning while providing specific strategies via videotape examples. Classroom and small young adult group activities will help the participants understand the developmental processes and core capacities needed in order for individuals to succeed as well as how to foster them in individuals with diverse needs. Sample IEP goals will be provided to reflect interventions covered.
