Do you have students who have difficulty sitting still, initiating tasks, working through assignments to completion, or attending to the details of their work? Do they have difficulty applying active listening skills and memory strategies to support their learning and academic performance? This course will help you review, refresh, and reframe your thinking and ability to assess and implement effective tools and strategies that address these challenges directly. This course is on the cutting edge, given the current focus on SEL (social-emotional learning). Children will need to develop calming strategies for self-regulation and executive functioning so that they can effectively interact with their peers. In addition, this course will provide strategies to improve children’s independent work habits, sustained attention and motor output, to progress successfully through developmentally appropriate skills. Participants will learn low and high-tech tools to facilitate the development of self-regulation, attention, organization, and memory as well as environmental accommodations and modifications.
- Relate Ayres Theory of Sensory Integration to self-regulation and executive functioning skills.
- Relate the components of self-regulation and executive function skills to success in life and school.
- Identify the developmental progression of self-regulation and executive functioning skills.
- Choose a self-regulation strategy to support executive function for an elementary student.
- Apply practical and effective methods to facilitate sustained attention, initiation, and/or task completion in the classroom or at home.
- Modify instructional materials to allow students with self-regulation and executive function weakness to access the curriculum.
This course is appropriate for pediatric PTs, OTs and SLPs working in a school-based or clinical setting.

This material really tied it all together for me, and showed that sensory processing and executive functioning are interconnected. Great course content balance between lecture material and resources - the info on apps and equipment sources that help us hit the ground running in using the material in our treatments. Much thanks!! -Laurel B., OTR/L
