Elementary Support for Executive Function
Often, a student will benefit from combined work with both a multisensory approach to learning as well as support for developing executive function skills. As needed, explicit teaching of skills can be taught along with the academic piece as the main focus, to help students with organizational, time management and study skills. Additionally, but teaching mindfulness and breathing strategies, I find that students can increase their focus and cultivate a calm mind and resilience when working through the challenges of learning. To support success and greater focus, I also blend in frequent movement breaks.
