Event Description

Children’s verbal skills differ for many different reasons. Some may have a specific deficit in learning language rules and structures. For others, the differences in expression may result from underlying limitations in memory skills, or in the cognitive control and flexibility needed to plan and monitor communication. The purpose of this workshop will be to examine how limitations in working memory, and other executive functions impact language and learning generally. Assessment and intervention strategies related to executive functions will be discussed.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to
•describe executive functions and the cognitive processes that support them, as well as how these cognitive processes interact in supporting learning
•apply understanding of executive functions, language, and learning in assessment and intervention for children with a wide range of challenges impacting cognitive and linguistic functioning.

Target Audience: The workshop would be suitable for anyone working with children with language or cognitive deficits.
