Episode 4: Executive Function Skills Can Be Explicitly Taught

Episode 4: Executive Function Skills Can Be Explicitly Taught

It’s hard to sympathize with a kid who never finishes his classwork on time, doesn’t put away his toys without a reminder, or cannot seem to carryover that love and focus for video games into school work. Strong Executive Function skills are required to stay engaged, get organized, control impulsive actions, and rein in inappropriate emotional reactions. On today’s podcast, our guest Dr. Peg Dawson, co-author of “Smart but Scattered,” will share how these crucial ‘habits of mind’ can be taught explicitly.

* This is Peg’s second podcast episode that explains how and why Executive Functions can be developed and learned.
