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.
