Helping Students Develop Executive Skills for Online Learning
For some young people, knowing how to organize materials, plan a work schedule and manage their time comes as naturally as breathing. For others, these skills can be acquired with simple coaching and/or modeling from helping adults. For young people diagnosed with ADHD or other challenges that impact the development of executive functioning skills, learning how to organize, plan, filter distractions, sustain attention, meet deadlines, regulate impulses, and all of the other skills needed to do well academically–and stand a chance at navigating distance learning–do not come naturally but rather require intensive, focused teaching.
This post, written by Sarah Gonser for Edutopia, provides a great list of the skills and strategies students need to develop and master the skills they need for learning.
