This webinar proposes an in-depth, neuropsychological and rating scale approach to executive functions assessment that goes beyond a simple assessment of executive functions. The webinar discusses the impact of executive functions on ADHD, working memory, other cognitive functions, achievement, and academic performance. It also includes a discussion of how executive functions are related to social emotional learning (SEL). The webinar concludes with a brief review of evidence-based interventions that address specific executive function weaknesses.
