The Evidence for Executive Function Assessment and Intervention

‐ Nov 1, 2023 11:30am

Executive functions contribute demonstrably to students’ success in the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral domains, and executive dysfunction contributes to a wide range of clinical conditions. In this presentation, we will discuss a functional framework for understanding executive functions, the contributions of rating scale and performance measures to assessment, and profiles in common clinical populations. We will examine how this data informs development of interventions and review evidence for approaches to interventions.
