Creating Time Awareness and Time Usage Skills in Children with Poor Executive Functioning
Executive functions (EFs) skills allow us to plan, prioritize, organize, and carry out actions and allow us to think into the future. Children with poor EF skills often live in the here and now, and have limited ability to think, predict, or plan. Many of our self-regulation supports and strategies are dependent on first helping the child to master the time concepts. This 2-hour course provides a new look at how to systematically teach and support children while they develop a sense of time.
