New Spotlight session on dyslexia and executive function skills

Spotlight executive function

Monday 24 April, 6 to 7.30 pm

Executive functions are a family of three core brain processes: inhibitory control, working memory and cognitive flexibility. These three core executive functions work together in different ways resulting in a set of other high-order skills called executive function skills. There are 11 executive functions skills including time-management, organisation, planning, emotional control and response inhibition.

Many neurodivergent people experience executive function challenges. As part of this talk, expert Victoria Bagnall will look at:

  • the links between Dyslexia and executive functioning
  • how executive functions impact physical health and mental wellbeing throughout life
  • how executive functions impact teaching and learning
  • introduce a 3-step approach to supporting the development of these essential skills.
