The concept of executive function has gained attention in the educational domain over the past decade, as these self-regulatory functions play a central role that impacts the learning, social, behavioral, and emotional domains. This workshop is designed to assist psychologists in conceptualizing, assessing, and enhancing the self-regulatory aspects of children's everyday functioning. Topics will include functional definitions and models, assessment methods, and a model for intervening with children who present with acquired or developmental executive function difficulties. The workshop uses a case-based format to illustrate how executive function assessment practices are integrated within an overall assessment framework.
