W-05: Executive Functions Assessment and Interventions

9:00AM – 12:00PM | Regency B
Executive functions include self-regulation skills, self-realization, and self-determination. Well-developed executive functions play an essential role in academic learning and performance, as well as in social and intrapersonal functioning. This workshop proposes an in-depth, neuropsychological approach to executive functions assessment that goes beyond simple rating scales. The presentation includes a review of the new McCloskey Executive Functions Scale (MEFS). The workshop also includes details on evidence-based interventions that address specific executive weaknesses.

Dr. Milton Dehn is a nationally recognized expert on processing assessment, working memory and children’s long-term memory problems. Dr. Dehn is the author of Essentials of Working Memory Assessment and Intervention, Helping Students Remember, and Essentials of Processing Assessment, Second Edition. He is now a private practice school psychologist and program director for Schoolhouse Educational Services, an agency in La Crosse, WI that provides assessment, consultation and tutoring for children with learning and memory problems.

Note: Workshop handouts will be placed online prior to the event. CASP will charge $10 per day for anyone requesting printed handouts.
