About the event
Executive functioning is a common challenge for 2e learners. It was the #1 topic requested in our annual community survey. 2e learners’ asynchrony can mean they perform wonders in their favorite subjects, but may get low grades because they don’t turn in their homework. They may show amazing executive functioning abilities when it comes to their favorite hobby, but can be challenged when it comes to “straight forward” school tasks. EF challenges can cause 2e students anxiety and self-esteem challenges when others perceive them or they perceive themselves as lazy or unmotivated. Executive functioning covers a broad array of areas - in this talk we will focus on planning and prioritizing, task initiation, and organization. Gather practical tips from experts Sam Young, Marcie Habell, and Mason Tudor to support your 2e student through a strength-based lens. Learn what accommodations to ask for at school.
