George McCloskey is a leading contributor to our understanding of executive function and a much sought-after teacher with a rare gift for showing how you can apply specific assessment and intervention tools in work with children at the clinic and in the classroom. This recording is for therapists as well as educational administrators, counselors, classroom teachers, and others actively engaged with children and young people.

Among the topics covered will be:
a functional, multidimensional definition in the form of a comprehensive model of executive functions
how executive function use varies based on domains of functioning (perception, emotion, thought and action)
how executive functions vary based on arena of involvement (intrapersonal, interpersonal, environment, symbol system)
the various roles of executive functions in classroom learning and production and everyday behavior
the relationship of executive functions to childhood psychopathology and clinical diagnostic categories
a multidimensional framework for assessing the executive function capacities of children and adolescents
student and teacher classroom observation methods for improving academic production and classroom management
a model for conducting functional behavior assessments and developing behavior support plans that are based on current knowledge of executive functions and cognition and their mediating effects on the connection between antecedents and behaviors; the EF-driven FBA model helps to frame the problem and the intervention in non-punitive, goal-oriented statements that can be monitored for effectiveness of outcomes
intervention strategies that vary based on a continuum from degree of external control to degree of internal self-regulation
the planning, implementation, and outcome assessment of school-, clinic-, and home-based interventions designed to deal with child and adolescent executive function difficulties

Case studies of children and adolescents demonstrating executive function difficulties will be discussed throughout the recording.
