ADHD Including EXECUTIVE FUNCTION SKILLS PACKAGE

This full-day workshop will initially introduce ADHD and how a greater understanding of neurodiversity can effectively support additional needs.

This will form the foundation needed to understand the principles of the executive function package.

We will then guide you through our executive function intervention package which is presented as a series of lessons. This can then be delivered as an intervention to pupils.

Executive function is a set of mental skills that include working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. We use these skills every day to learn, work, and manage daily life and they are key to pupil success in school.
