EXECUTIVE FUNCTION RESEARCH PROGRAM
This conference is being organized by Morrissey-Compton Educational Center's Executive Function Research program, which was established to address the growing needs of students with weaknesses in executive function skills and general learning difficulties. Executive function skills consist of a set of cognitive processes in the brain that include working memory, cognitive flexibility, planning, organizing, prioritizing, and self-reflection. Our goal is to better understand the learning profiles of students with executive function challenges, to design effective interventions, to train schools in executive function, and to disseminate up-to-date information on executive function to other professionals in the field and parents.
