Student-Centered Interventions to Support All Students: MiniPD Coaches in Conversation
Executive function (EF) skills are the core cognitive skills for nurturing independent and successful young people, and for managing stress and lifelong wellbeing. What practical activities and strategies can we use to support all our students? How can we design personal interventions to address the needs of individual students whose executive skills challenges either impact their behaviour in the classroom or their abiilty to profit from instruction? How can a multi-tiered support system add value and connect to your current practice?

In this 60 minute session, Dr. Peg Dawson, author of best selling Smart but Scattered book series, will share some of her knowledge about executive skills and student-centered intervention design so we can support all our students to be successful from early childhood and primary years through to middle school, IGCSE, IBDP, A-level years, and beyond.

Dr. Dawson will be joined in conversation by Shannon Raybold, Program Administrator for Multnomah Early Childhood Program, MiniPD Coach and Course Developer, and Haakon Gould, Service Learning Coach and MiniPD Coach.

Key words: Sustained Attention; Task Initiation; Metacognition; Environment; Incentives; Motivators; Interventions; Multi-Tiered Support Systems.
