The Executive Function & Behavior Link
Targeting Executive Function with Physical,
Cognitive, and Environmental Strategies
This intervention-packed seminar addresses the aggressive, avoidant, or helpless
behavior that often results from deficits in executive functioning skills.
Applying the innovative principles learned in this course – using cognitive,
physical, and external strategies – will help your clients successfully
negotiate life without heavy reliance on others to organize what they cannot
organize enough for themselves.
In just 6 hours, you will leave with tools that can be applied tomorrow to begin
to not only assist your clients in gaining motor skills, but also in improving
participation and generalization of those motor skills into therapy and into
life. Your instructor, Nicole Quint, Dr, OT, OTR/L, will show you how to make
your interventions more effective; improve children’s motivation, cooperation,
and independence; and provide parents or teachers with evidence-based techniques
to generalize skills into their daily activities.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Define executive functioning and the
functional difficulties that deficits cause in daily life
- List the types of difficulties rooted in
executive functioning deficits and assessments to determine them
- Determine the domains of intervention as they
relate to client-centered clinical practice, functional outcomes, and
- Catalog the facets of interventions that work
together to create real and lasting change for clients
- Identify therapeutic application of motor,
technological, and strategy-based treatments to support skill remediation and
- Create holistic intervention plans using
evidence-based interventions that effectively combine the use of physical,
cognitive, and technological strategies
What Should You Bring

interventions (iPad, tablets, or smartphones).
