“Executive function and self-regulation skills are mental processes
that support our ability to plan, organize, control our impulses,
make safe, healthy choices, and engage in positive behavior.
They depend on three types of brain function: working memory,
mental flexibility, and self –control.” Some children require more
focused support to better develop executive functioning and
self-regulation skills. Meghan Greeley, Social Worker, and Sima
Rashidianfar, Occupational Therapist, will share strategies and
tools for promoting development of self-regulation and executive
functioning skills for Primary and school-aged students.
