Executive Functions: Foundations for Self-Regulated Reading

Executive functions are self-regulatory thinking skills that help students manage their thoughts, emotions, and actions. These essential albeit often invisible skills play such a critical role in reading that when students have weak or disordered executive functions, it becomes patently obvious in the classroom.

In this webinar, Kelly B. Cartwright explores how deficits in executive functions can have a direct impact on word reading and comprehension. Takeaways include

  • Basic information about executive functions and how they support self-regulated reading
  • Insights on how strengthening reading-related executive function processes improves reading achievement
  • Use-them-tomorrow instructional ideas and strategies for assessing and supporting students’ executive functions in the literacy classroom

Who should register: Classroom teachers, reading specialists, and literacy coaches—as well as any educator who has ever wondered why some students who seem to have skills in phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, and vocabulary struggle with putting these things together in reading.
