Executive Functions in Students with Acquired Brain Injury
Biannual Brainstorming Brain Injury Series is pleased to host The 4th Mark Ylvisaker Honorary Lecture, The 2017 Dr. Mark Ylvisaker Honorary Lecture-Recipient-Dr. Lyn S. Turkstra, Ph.D.
Executive functions (EFs) are a set skills used to achieve goals in everyday life, including communication and academic goals for students at all levels of education. In this workshop, we will generate a working definition of EFs and use this definition to identify practice methods for assessment and intervention. Our focus will be on students with acquired brain injuries (ABI), but there is strong evidence that the same principles apply broadly to students with EF challenge, so results of the workshop should apply to students with developmental communication disorders as well.
