GFESC - EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS: USING LANGUAGE TO THINK

This workshop, based on training and text by Jill Fahy, CCC-SLP, is designed to explain Executive Function (EF) skills and the difficulties that can occur when development is delayed or when deficits are present as a result of language disorder and/or brain injury.

Topics include the underlying cognitive foundation for and components of executive function, associated impairments, basic anatomy and physiology, normal development, the role of language as it mediates EF development and behaviors, formal and informal assessment options, intervention concepts, and treatment strategies that target specific areas of EF deficit.

This training is designed for SLPs who work in schools with students who are attempting to meet the Arkansas State Standards.  General and special education teachers, psychological examiners, supervisors, support staff, and any personnel who address language in coordination with SLPs may also benefit.
