Overview

Do you have students who struggle with managing their time, organizing their belongings, or regulating themselves? After a brief overview of these executive functioning skills, we will dive into free, premium and paid tools for Google, OSX, and iOS (many are cross-platform, so Windows and Android users are welcome!).

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to list at least one tool to support each area of the eleven executive functioning skill categories as outlined by Dawson and Guare.
  2. Participants will be able to differentiate between assistive technology tools for cognition and behavior support
  3. Participants will be able to summarize the overlapping disabilities categories that impact students’ executive functioning skills.
