Can’t Do or Won’t Do? Executive Functioning Skill Building to Solve Behavior Challenges

Virtual Event

For students to reach educational goals, it is important to classify learning and behavioral challenges as “can’t do,” or “won’t do.” Is the work or process beyond the student’s skill level, or is the motivation to complete the task not there? By identifying and improving executive functioning skills, we can decrease obstacles and match student strengths with activities they can excel at — while overcoming skill deficits and implementing positive reinforcement.

Long will share strategies to increase student success and provide interventions to increase independence and communication so every student can thrive. Participants will learn to identify learning obstacles and discern when skill improvements or additional positive reinforcements are needed.

Long is the founder and president of The Autism Helper, Inc. She is a board-certified behavior analyst and former special education teacher with a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis.
