About the Course

Executive functioning difficulties are commonly experienced by children with a range of other neurological conditions which include dyslexia, Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This makes it imperative for practitioners and parents who work with these children to have good knowledge of executive functioning difficulties and learn how to better support them in this area. This 16-hour course aims to focus on the information that is most needed to support a child in a mainstream context. It allows practitioners and parents to appreciate the executive functioning processes that are behind the successful execution of academic tasks, delves into the implications of executive functioning difficulties on academic learning in school, and imparts practical, down-to-earth strategies that can lead to improved daily performance.

Target audience includes parents, social workers, counsellors, school staffs, mentoring programme coordinators, volunteer mentors and other practitioners who are involved in the support of children and youth with SEN. The course will improve the quality of life of these children and youth, as well as their caregivers. The course will enable the target audience to more effectively manage the daily challenges and stress posed by a lack of executive function skills, as well as create an effective and conducive home and learning environment that allows these children and youth to thrive.

By the end of the course , learners will be able to:

  1. Integrate neuropsychological understanding of executive function into the management of children with special needs
  2. Judge how the neuropsychological understanding of executive function impacts functional outcomes in the areas of academic and behavioural development
  3. Create a comprehensive profile of a learner with executive function difficulties by integrating professional inputs and information from various tools
  4. Provide informed and relevant intervention support to address learner’s executive function difficulties to help them access academic and social requirements
  5. Apply the Antecedent-Behaviour-Consequence (ABC) framework to analyse and modify a learner’s learning/behaviour

DAS Academy will be delivering this course with these modes of learning: Classroom, Synchronous & Asynchronous E-learning.

This course will only proceed with a minimum of 15 participants.
