TARGET PARTICIPANTS
Parents, caregivers, and educators who work with children between the ages of 7 to 14 (Primary 1 to Secondary 2)

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES
This workshop is targeted at parents and teachers who are interested in helping learners with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) to become more effective in managing their studies. SpLD learners tend to struggle more with school work due to the nature of their learning needs. They can also have co-occurring issues such as Attention Deficit which leads to poor focus and disorganisation. This workshop thus aims to help these parents and teachers understand the role of a key set of mental skills called executive function and how applying executive function strategies can help SpLD learners be more effective as students.

BRIEF COURSE CONTENT

Topics:

  1. Executive function as a concept
  2. The importance of executive function for SpLD learners
  3. Apply executive function strategies in school
  4. The ‘hill, skill, will’ of executive function

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Articulate how poor executive function impacts learners with SpLD
  • Acquire strategies to support SpLD learners in using executive function strategies in order to study more effectively
  • Gain knowledge on how to support SpLD learners to use the three parameters of ‘hill, skill, will’ to manage academic challenges.
