Executive Function skills aren’t just important for young children.
Learn how to aid adolescence in the development of Executive Function in this course!


A lot of attention is given to Executive Function development in early childhood because of the importance of early experiences for cognitive development. However, Executive Function skills continue to develop well beyond early childhood and into adolescence and adulthood. This course will focus on the role Executive Function skills play in adolescence, including its role in risk-taking and decision-making, strategies to support creativity, planning, and reflection in the classroom, and how to enrich classroom activities with added Executive Function demands. In addition, this course will introduce practices that can be implemented into existing school curricula to challenge students’ Executive Function skills. Finally, this course will identify factors that can adversely affect the development and expression of Executive Function skills, including toxic stress, chaotic home environments, social media distraction and emotion dysregulation.
