What is Executive Function?
3 Clock Hours Early Childhood Education Training
3 Clock Hours
Imagine that you have a symphony in your head with many individual instruments that are supposed to work together under the guidance of a conductor. This conductor knows what the individuals in the symphony must do though she doesn’t physically do them herself. Instead she guides, directs, organizes, and plans the pieces to work for specific musical performances and practices. Now, imagine that you have no conductor. The pieces of the symphony all work fine independently but there is nothing to guide them toward success. This conductor, in a nutshell, is executive function. This course will explain the basics of executive function and how it affects children’s learning and behavior. In addition, the training will provide suggestions and recommendations for supporting children with executive function disorders or challenges.
