Do you work with students who struggle with knowing how to approach tasks and then how to think and act when they are required to plan, execute, and evaluate their performance?  This executive functioning series may be for you and your students.  This series includes four Learning Strategies in the storage and memory strands to support student executive functioning in the inclusive classroom as well as independent functioning in the community.

The four classes may be taken as a continuum or individually to meet the professional development needs of the participants.  The series will focus on separate domains of executive functioning of the brain and provide a variety of options to teach students how to complete tasks by teaching them how to learn.


Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: SIM Virtual Professional Learning, applicable guidebook(s), access to digital teacher resources, and a one-hour small group coaching session.

Price: $175/per session
