Executive Function in the Everyday Context: The Evidence for Assessment and Intervention
With Dr. Peter Isquith
Executive functions contribute demonstrably to children’s success in the academic, social, emotional and behavioral domains, and executive dysfunction contributes to a wide range of clinical conditions. In this presentation, we will discuss contributions of rating scale and performance measures to assessment of executive functions, including profiles in an array of clinical populations and associations with language, outcomes and biological markers. We will focus on how this data informs development of interventions, and approaches to assessing intervention outcome. Finally, we will review evidence for interventions with executive functions.
