CE/CPD Module Description

Name of CE/CPD Module:
A Five Dimensional Model of Executive Function: Cognition, Behavior, Social-Emotional, Academics, & Impairment

CE/CPD Description:
In this presentation I will describe a five-dimensional model of executive function (EF) that can be used to guide the composition of a comprehensive assessment of EF. This will include assessing EF from (1) observable behaviors (e.g., CEFI), (2) a measure of intelligence (using PASS theory), (3) social-emotional skills (e.g., DESSA), (4) academic skills strengths and needs (e.g., FAR and FAM), (5) and the impairment that may result (e.g., RSI). The session will include a discussion of the theory, assessment, and research relevance of tools that can be used to form a comprehensive assessment of EF across these dimensions and a way to measure the amount of impairment an EF weakness creates. Intervention methods will be discussed throughout the presentation. Benefits include a broad view of EF that can be used to guide assessment and instruction that improves academic and life skills.

CE/CPD Goals and Objectives:
This CE/CPD Module is designed to help you:
• Identify components of brain-based understanding of intelligence that includes EF
• Identify how EF is seen in measures of cognition, behavior, social and academic skills.
• Identify interventions that encourage the use of EF
• Identify components of a comprehensive EF model.
• Identify how impairments in EF can be quantified.

Number of CE/CPD Credits: 3

Cost for Individuals: $90

Cost for Groups of 5+: $
