Executive Functions Skills and Reading
Spring 2019



Why is reading such a challenge for so many? One often overlooked factor is the role that executive function plays when we engage with text. Broadly put, executive function (EF) describes the cognitive processes that regulate self-directed behavior toward a goal. If we think about what students face when they tackle a textbook, we can see Executive Functions at work, from planning where and when to read to extracting meaning in a way that supports understanding, retaining and applying information. In this session you will explore what recent research tells us about executive functions and reading and how we can make struggling readers better readers.
