An Executive Functioning View of Poor Impulse Control, Motivation, and Self-Regulation
Often children and teens with sensory needs continue to struggle with impulse control, behavioral regulation, and self-control even after sensory plans have been put into place. This groundbreaking, 2-hour course looks at how sensory and Executive Function (EF) skills work together, how to address both, and offers ways of discerning which is the primary area of challenge. This course is also available in an executive functioning webinar package.
